Visual Juxtaposition as Qualitative Inquiry in Educational Research
Metcalfe, Amy Scott
International Journal of Qualitative Studies in Education (QSE), v28 n2 p151-167 2015
Visual juxtaposition is inquiry through contrast, facilitated by side-by-side positioning of two images, or images and text. When combined with a theoretical foundation that explores interactions between the material and discursive elements of visual data, juxtaposition creates opportunities for qualitative analysis that are not as readily apparent when individual images are considered. Analytic extensions of this practice are described as "archival," "spatial," "multimodal," and "intertextual."
