Using visual diaries to capture the everyday lives of people in mid to later life - Wendy Martin
The use of visual methods in research on ageing has become increasingly popular. Not a great deal of it, however, has looked at people in mid to later life. A team at Brunel University, London, however, has been doing just that, using photography to document every day lives. The research, presented at the ESRC Research Methods Festival, 2016, has also resulted in some innovative engagement in the form of a hugely successful photographic exhibition. Project Principal Investigator, Dr Wendy Martin explains more to Chris Garrington in this episode of the Methods Podcast.
