Why use photographs in field research?

posted in: Concepts 0

The use of images produced by the researcher or interviewee can facilitate the creation of a bridge between the different experiences of reality. Photo elicitation is a very useful technique in allowing participants to share their inner views, ideas, perspectives. The Cobra Collective makes wide use of this tool in order to engage local communities in finding the challenges they face in their everyday life and in sharing possible solutions to these challenges.
