Dear fellow network analysts,

 

Thank you all for the suggestions! I compiled a list of sources on the subject of using photos as a source of data for social science research. Hopefully this will benefit other researchers as well.

Subject: Using photos to do network analysis

 

Dear fellow network analysts,

 

I am currently in search of network literature on the value of using photos to study relationships. More specifically using photos as rosters or memory aids. I would appreciate it if I could be pointed to the relevant literature.

 

Thanks,
