Tackle the feelings, emotions and expressiveness the “others” has always been an area of concern for the social sciences. However, the progressive and sustained use of the “expressivity capture technologies” (Scribano: 2008a, 253) have enabled significant progress in addressing the expressiveness of the actors.
This article has its genesis in a collective research project funded by the National University of Villa Maria, led by Dr. Adrian Scribano and Co-Directed by Mgter. Graciela Magallanes, entitled “Interstitial Practices and expenditure Festive “, there we worked on data collection with photographs and interviews with actors of different age groups and social class of the city.
In this time, we will give an account of the use of one of these technologies, the photography to the actors in the city of Villa Maria, trying to deepen what they have identified as “party” and in which moment or social process of their life have linked.
