Abstract [en]

In a study on children’s relations to outdoor places, 41 6- to 8-year-old children took photos with digital cameras during walks in schoolyards and nature environments. In the present article, the cameras and their role in the research process are in focus. A materialist approach has guided the analysis (Barad 2003, 2007). The research process is seen as a materialist-discursive phenomenon in which several human and nonhuman agents intra-act. The results indicate that the cameras give rise to explorative activities and function as a third party in social situations. These activities occasionally counteract the purpose of the study.
