About the Author

Sarah Pink is Professor of Design and Media Ethnography at RMIT University in Australia, and Professor in Applied Social and Cultural Analysis at Halmstad University in Sweden. She is a global leader in sensory and visual ethnography. Her work is usually interdisciplinary and international, connecting anthropological ethnography to design and engineering disciplines as well as to documentary and arts practice, in projects that challenge conventional ethnographic temporalities, and bring academic scholarship to applied research problems. Sarah's other recent books include Doing Visual Ethnography (3rd edition) (2013), Situating Everyday Life (2012) and Advances in Visual Methodology (2012).


This is a book about research that takes the challenge of the internet seriously, that rises above disciplinary difference and points to new directions for social research
Rob Walker
University of East Anglia

A stunning collection of cutting-edge essays which brings together the leading scholars in visual research. Clearly structured, and written in an engaging and accessible style throughout, this invigorating work will be the 'must have' text for teachers and students of `the visual' across the arts, humanities and social sciences
Elaine Campbell
Reader in Criminology, Newcastle University

Sarah Pink's edited collection brings together a range of experienced researchers to share and exemplify their work with visual data in social research... The strength of the collection lies in the consistent combining of introductory material with evidence from authors' own research and reflexive critique of political and ethical issues arising from the work... Recommended reading for doctoral students and teacher-researchers who either intend to elicit visual data or just want to know why they won't.
Julian McDougall
Media Education Research Journal

Pink has put together a volume of essays on visual methodology with the task of "understanding and engaging not only with the newest and latest theoretical developments in our fields, but also with the ways these are co-implicated with technological developments and media practices" (Pink, 2012, p. 3)... The strength of these essays is the rigor with which they engage the concept of space and place, giving them enough detail to be useful not only for theory but also practice - or, put another way, to be useful in meaningfully breaking down theory, practice, and how they need to intersect for strong research.
Sara Martel
The Communication Review

What is distinctive about Sarah Pink's Advances in Visual Methodology is the attempt to establish visual methodology as an interdisciplinary field of practice, while recognizing the interconnectedness of theory, technology and methods. [...] By advancing a process perspective, Pink and colleagues suggest that visual methodology is co-constructed in the research encounter, and constantly re-shaped in the everyday practices of researchers. But the foremost merit of this book consists of drawing connections between theoretical and technological developments, in such a way as to trace possible routes for visual methodology to bring forward new types of knowledge.
-- Alice Comi
This book is stylistically coherent, generally concise and consistently interesting. I found it very useful in relation to my own research and in helping me gauge my own topographic location within present endeavours in visual methods. [...] I think this book represents a valuable contribution to the field, and one that has clearly been put together with a genuine concern for the health and future of visual methodologies. -- Nathan Stephens Griffin
The book is edited by an experienced visual ethnographer, written by an interdisciplinary group of interdisciplinary group of contributors, divided into five parts, and organised around carefully selected topics... Pink's Advances in Visual Methodologies considers and presses beyond the contemporary boundaries of visual research practice and is intended for an audience familiar with visual research techniques. -- Roman R. Williams
