In this article, we draw from the epistemological standpoint that researcher and participant subjectivities are fully implicated in the (co)-construction of knowledge and should therefore be documented and made retrievable. Through the lens of reflexivity, and drawing from an African-centered Photovoice project on youth representations of safety, we surface the tensions, contestations, instabilities, power variances, constraints and inventiveness in our research to expose voice and positionality dilemmas inherent in the enactment of critical community psychologies. We also seek to record context-sensitive practice to encapsulate how this particular innovative project operates in real-world settings. We argue that reflexivity is central to participatory forms of knowledge construction and consciousness raising directed at transformation, and rendered all the more significant in research contexts characterized by difference, inequality, and marginality. Article Note: We are deeply grateful to the project participants and our research partners from South Africa, Mozambique, Uganda, Zambia, Egypt, and Ethiopia for inviting us into the rich dialogic spaces from which this reflexive engagement draws.
