Book Description

November 21, 2006 1412923484 978-1412923484 2nd
Following the success of the First Edition, this fully revised and updated Second Edition of Doing Visual Ethnography explores the use and potential of photography, video, and hypermedia in ethnographic and social research. It offers a reflexive approach to theoretical, methodological, practical, and ethical issues of using these media now that they are increasingly being incorporated into field research. Author Sarah Pink adopts the viewpoint that visual research methods should be rooted in a critical understanding of local and academic visual cultures, the visual media, and technologies being used and the ethical issues they raise.

Sarah Pink's book Doing Visual Ethnography was right on! I found her writing style a bit to get use to, howwever, after chapter 2 I was humming through her book. I especially like the chapter where she raises awareness about the ethics involved in doing a visual ethnogrpahy. I am doing a photographic ethnography for a classes at the Master's level and I felt she gave me a very thorough guide as to how to approach this semester's class. The book also , I felt, offered me a clear understanding of what I need to consider and actually have in place prior to the start of "clicking my camera" for ethnogrpahic documentation. Sarah Pink truely helped me better understand ethnographic studies. Be patient, just read and it will come to you!

2.0 out of 5 stars Mediocre July 12, 2009
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This might a case of "best in class" when the class in view is pretty darn poor. Not a great read, nor a great treatment of visual ethnography. Somebody out there has to have a better take on the subject than this.
