Ethnography and Photography Today: New Perspectives, Technologies and Narratives

Marina Berardi, Chiara Scardozzi

Abstract


Ethnography and photography are relational practices configured as two forms of writing with their own specificities that intersect. Considering the profound technological changes in the recent decades and the crisis of ethnographic authority and photographic representation, the attempt of this special issue is to generate an overview of the plurality of theoretical and methodological approaches relating to the use and production of images in social research.

Keywords


Photography; ethnography; visual ethnography; social research; collaborative ethnography; visual research; images; visual methods.
