I am hoping to use photographs as a means of data collection and am wondering whether anyone could recommend any books or articles about this method please.1st April 2009 at 7:26 am #6304MridulaMember
One article in the context of tourism marketing that I am aware of is THE CONTEXT OF THIRD
WORLD TOURISM MARKETING by Echtner and Prasad. They have used photographs from tourism brochures as data. But not sure how big a help it is from the point of methodology as such but some of the references could be of further interest.1st April 2009 at 7:41 am #6303

Caroline and if you find something please share it here because I too posted a similar query. I am also interested in using photographs as data.1st April 2009 at 2:24 pm #6301Hazel BurkeMember
You might like to have a look at one of our toolkits “Informed Consent in Visual Research” by Katherine Davies. It focuses on the ethical implications and issues around getting consent from research participants to re-use photos. See http://www.manchester.ac.uk/realities/resources/toolkits/.
We also have a very short working paper by Jon Prosser: “Researching with Visual Images” which is an introduction to some of the key ideas for beginners. There is a short list of suggested readings at the end, too. See http://www.manchester.ac.uk/realities/publications/workingpapers/

We have done some work that integrates photography, mapping and narrative interviewing in the context of participatory community-based research (“participatory photo mapping” or PPM).
Our recent article published in Health and Place may have some helpful discussion as well as useful references to the literature:
Dennis SF, Gaulocher S, Carpiano R, Brown D. (2009). Using Participatory Photo-Mapping (PPM) with Young People in Health and Place Research. Health and Place; 15 (2): 466-473.
You might also be interested in the summary of a workshop we conducted earlier this year.

Hi Caroline – This may be of interest. I have access to it via Anthrosource.
George Spindler, “Using Visual Stimuli in Ethnography.” Anthropology & Education Quarterly. Volume 39. Issue 2. June 2008 (Pages 127 – 140)
In this article, the work of George and Louise Spindler is reviewed with visual stimuli ranging from the Rorschach technique and Thematic Apperception Technique to inventions of their own, the Cross-Cultural Sensitization Technique, the Instrumental Activities Inventory, and the Cross-Cultural, Comparative, Reflective Interview Technique. The sites of the various researches, the methods of application, and a brief analysis of the results are included. [interview techniques, culture and personality, ethnography and education]
Let me know if you can’t get your hands on a copy of this. Paul5th December 2009 at 9:37 pm #6295
