From the Inside Flap
This book provides reliable research methods from the systematic gathering of data through analysis of photographic records to transfer of insights to ethnographic records, with an emphasis on developing the skills of thorough observation rather than on technical skill.

I am the Director of a small disability charity and the description of how the author's disabilities led to him seeing the world differently as this superb book describes and then put it into practice is awe inspiring.
Should be a core text for anyone in the caring professions so they seriously learn how to empower people by showing them how to use powerful tools to enable change.
And I note it is not referenced in the visual anthropology section of wiki!
