This book explores the methodological, ethical, representational and theoretical issues surrounding image based research with children and young people. It provides well argued and illustrated resources to guide novice and experienced researchers through: examining research conducted with children and young people, and research conducted by children and young people including work with photography, multimedia, drawing and other art forms, and video and film-making containing a balance of theoretical, methodological and empirical material. Work with cameras, video, multimedia and drawing appeal to children and young people, since they live in image saturated worlds, but there are important debates about the possibilities of each medium, and important debates about 'authenticity', ownership, interpretation and anonymity. These debates are increasingly urgent at a time when digital production techniques make theproduction and reproduction of images increasingly easy and accessible. This edited collection will be an ideal guide for researchers both at undergraduate and post-graduate level across a range of disciples including education, youth and social work, health and nursing, criminology and community studies.
