Abstract

LUTTRELL, Wendy. CAREFUL SEEING: A VISUAL RESEARCH PROJECT WITH CHILDREN. Cad. CEDES [online]. 2021, vol.41, n.113, pp.44-55.  Epub Jan 15, 2021. ISSN 1678-7110.  https://doi.org/10.1590/cc231883_in.

This paper is based on a longitudinal visual ethnographic project with children growing up in poor and working-class communities in Worcester, Massachusetts, who were given disposable cameras to photograph their family, school, and community lives. The research was interested in considering what role, if any, gender, race, ethnicity, class, and immigrant status would have in how the young people (at ages 10, 12, 16, and 18) would represent their lives. The focus is on the power of their counter-narratives of care, which questioned the dominant representations imposed on them, and presented care as a social good that is necessary to civic society in a way that cannot be understated.

Keywords : Children; Ethnography; Photography; Care.
