Abstract

A research photo essay in visual a/r/tography is a coherent, systematic, and original group of visual images about education (or any other social science). This relatively recent research methodology essentially produces new visual images about educational questions. Like any other research methodology, visual a/r/tography assumes (a) certain basic epistemological positions, (b) distinctive methodological strategies, and (c) specific quality criteria. We suggest five different paths to identify assessment criteria, the most important of these residing in the development of a framework of correspondences between quality criteria usually applied to research reports based on words (sentences, paragraphs, verbal thinking) and those based on visual images (photos, photo essays, visual thinking).
