            Further than the eye can see? Photo elicitation and research with men.

            Photo elicitation studies have attracted modest attention in qualitative health research. However, few researchers have focused exclusively on men's health and/or illness experiences. In this article, the authors discuss the benefits of using photo elicitation among a sub-cohort of 19 prostate cancer survivors from a larger ethnographic study. Specifically, participants were asked to imagine that they were being paid to mount a photographic exhibition entitled Living With My Prostate Cancer, an exhibition that would show prostate cancer from their unique perspective. The authors subsequently discussed the photographs with the participants during individual interviews using photo elicitation techniques. The methods provided some unique and unanticipated benefits, the details of which the authors share to guide researchers considering similar approaches. In addition, the authors make specific recommendations for future photo elicitation applications to men's health research.

              Photovoice: use of a participatory action research method to explore the chronic pain experience in older adults.

              Photovoice is a participatory action research method in which individuals photograph their everyday health and work realities. The objective of this study is to determine the efficacy of photovoice as a unique and innovative method examining the pain experiences of clinic and nonclinic-based Black and White adults older than 50 years of age. Participants took photographs and composed written narratives based on their experiences with pain. Respondents also completed several open-ended questions focusing on their daily experiences with chronic pain. Some respondents identified their participation as a way of helping others cope with pain. Others felt it was a way of sharing their experiences with others. Photovoice might be used as an alternative method to enhance the understanding of the pain experience, thereby allowing researchers, health care providers, and policy makers to understand more fully and identify the dimensions of the pain experience not captured through quantitative measures.
