An Experiment in Visual Ethnography
This paper discusses a one-day exercise in visual ethnography using a digital camera to take photographs of Deptford in South East London. For me, this represented an experiment in using photography in social research.
This paper is an output from my attendance at an ESRC-funded ‘Live Sociology’ course at Goldsmiths College, London in 2006. The material here is based on a photography exercise and on discussions that took place during the workshop sessions.
