Matsumoto, M; Poveda, D; Morgade, M; Alonso, E. and Galera, N. (2016). Photographs as an elicitation technique and data source in research with children. 31st International Congress of Psychology, Yokohama (Japan), 24-29 July.
This is our first DIY video-recording, which we made as our presentation for 31st ICP we were not able to attend. In this methodological presentation we discuss photographs as a data source and a tool to elicit multi-layered data in research with children. The presentation is based on two strands of projects in which we have employed photographs: (1) A series of studies about family diversity in Spain and the USA; 2) A series of studies about daily routines of children in Madrid. The comparison of these projects allows uncovering some of the complexities and tensions in research with children drawing from visual materiales, such as: (a) when materials are created by participants or are elicited by researchers or (b) when analysis follows a narrative logic vs. a structural logic.
