Shifting the Focus: Children's Image-Making Practices and Their Implications for Analysis
Lomax, Helen Jayne
International Journal of Research & Method in Education, v35 n3 p227-234 2012
This paper provides analytic focus on the productive and editorial contexts of children and young people's image-making, making visible its implications for the analysis of photographs. Drawing on participatory research in which children and young people worked alongside researchers to create a visual narrative of their lived experiences of neighbourhood, the paper suggests that greater attention to children's image-making practices brings an important dimension to the interpretative challenges generated by the visual. Through a focus on image-making and its productive and editorial contexts, the paper shifts the analytic focus away from the image as a site of meaning-making to encompass the ways in which photographs acquire multiple meanings through the lived experience of their creators.
