A classic text for undergraduates and practitioners interested in using visual materials in social research. The emphasis on theory and practice makes it an enduring work for anyone approaching visual sociology or visual anthropology. -- John Aitken
This excellent new edition provides a clearly structured and accessible introduction to the research potential of the visual, as both object of study and method. It is richly illustrated with examples, from archival photographs and ethnographic films to new social media, which demonstrate how a critical and reflexive visual sensibility can expand the social research imagination. -- Darren Newbury
This revised edition of Visual Methods in Social Research builds on earlier strengths with a series of welcome and contemporary updates. Well structured, engagingly written and full of helpful methodological scaffolding, this enjoyable guide will be of great help to scholars and students committed to developing their visual literacy. -- Mark Turin
The book sets out to provide views from an anthropological base, in relation to the visual, that would be useful for researchers across diverse disciplines such as sociology, education, health, and cultural geography. The first edition of Visual Methods in Social Research was presented to readers where the visual path was less travelled, now it has become a path far more travelled, across disciplines and approaches. For this reason, a second edition was timely and I am sure that it will provide a useful map and guide for students, researchers and practitioners who incorporate visual materials in their projects. ????????????????????? ??????????? -- William G Feighery
