In recent years the popularity of visual research methods such as photovoice has steadily increased (Dennis et al., 2009). The knowledge that "images evoke deeper elements of human consciousness than do words" (Harper, 2002, p.13) allows researchers to form a deeper connection to participants than when relying on words alone. Keller et al. argue that this deeper connection between participants and researchers leads to a greater bond of trust, providing results with greater meaning and greater insight into cultural and social factors (2008).
