Abstract

The explosion of ‘visual methods’ such as photography, combined with more traditional observational approaches, have cemented visual senses as accepted and mainstream forms of research methods. In this paper, I discuss a number of vignettes drawn upon a number of research projects conducted with children, youth and families to critically consider different ways of thinking about visual methods. Initially from a point of ‘seeing’ visual methods as a way to authentically capture social life, more critical perspectives are engaged with, which explore how visual methods generate (rather than simply reflect) social life. Drawing upon a variety of perspectives, including Photovoice (Wang, 1994, Pink, 2001) and the posthumanist work of Kind (2013) and Nordstrom (2015) I explore different ways of thinking about how visual methods (and the technologies involved) are influential in generating the social life we seek to observe.
