Photography as a research method

February 17, 2010

‘Photography as a research method’ discribes how you can use photography to study your subject. As we are searching for new ways to do research, this fits that perfectly I think.

This book provides reliable research methods from the systematic gathering of data through analysis of photographic records to transfer of insights to ethnographic records, with an emphasis on developing the skills of thorough observation rather than on technical skill.

Although this books emphasises on observing and researching ethnic groups, I think you can apply this way of research to all kinds of subjects.

    I totally agree on this research method. In the minor visual culture I learned a lot of photograpy. It gives me a new and personal vision on existing things. I also wanted to use this research method!
