MAURENTE, Vanessa and TITTONI, Jaqueline. Images as a methodological research strategy: photocomposition and other possible approaches. Psicol. Soc. [online]. 2007, vol.19, n.3, pp. 33-38. ISSN 1807-0310. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0102-71822007000300006.
This article deals with photography as a research tool in social psychology, discussing its potential in the analysis of the processes underlying the production of subjectivity. For this means, we briefly review some forms of using photography in social research, taking the methodological perspectives of "photographic intervention" and "photocomposition" as references. This analysis is based on two studies on subjectivity and labor, undertaken with individuals working in income and employment generation programs and in the streets and squares of the city of Porto Alegre, respectively, in which the production of photographies was the central methodological strategy.
