We propose a series of three hands-on workshops and a closing roundtable discussion focused on methodologies of photoethnography and the current state of the genre. Each 2-hour workshop will feature three practitioners discussing their experience and will involve some participation from those attending the workshop. The roundtable will be structured as an informal and participatory conversation between the 9 workshop practitioners and the audience, talking about the current state of photoethnography.
In this first workshop, participants will discuss the equipment they are employing in current projects including the features of specific cameras, the practical applications of those chosen technologies, and the theoretical rationales for usage. They will also reflect upon their own practice of conducting photoethnography and offer practical advice for workshop participants seeking entry into the genre.
