Videographic geographies: Using digital video for geographic research

Bradley Garrett

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article is a review of the ways in which human geography has engaged with film and video. Beginning with a look at the history of cinematic analysis within the discipline, the paper outlines different possible uses for digital video, focusing on its merits as a multisensory ethnographic method. The article encourages geographers to make the move from analysis to production, citing examples from successful recent projects which have done so, endorsing further integration of video into fieldwork and an increase in digital publication to create what we might call videographic geographies.
