How can researchers avoid the inherent problem of influencing subjects while observing them? In this pioneering work, Ziller examines the uses of photography and video-communication as observation techniques.

He discusses the advantages and disadvantages of these approaches and outlines various research possibilities when using photo communication. Practical examples are drawn from clinical psychology, intercultural communication, family studies and criminal justice to demonstrate the effectiveness of this approach.
