Aesthetic aspects and photographic consequences in young children's use of digital cameras in preschool

Abstract [en]

Imagine that a group of thee year olds get access to digital cameras in a pre-school context without the guidance or the supervisions of teachers. What could happen? What will happen? What characterizes their photographic and digital practice? Do they express aesthetic preferences and how do they address the pre-school environment together with the gaze of the camera? When the teachers photograph children in pre-school it is often based on a documentary intention (Magnusson 2014; Svenning 2011). But children in pre-school do not use cameras in the same way as adults; they use them in a variety of other ways and with other strategies. The goal of this presentation is to highlight some possible aesthetic aspects of young children's camera usage. The visual material presented is part of an ethnographic study in an on-going thesis work focused on young children, photography and digital cameras. By taking the theoretical point of entry with new materialism and in particular together with Karen Barad (2001, 2007, 2010) and her agential realism, I understand the children's use of digital cameras as intra-active, mutual events where digital cameras, the preschool as much as the children are active participants in what is happening. The results presented and discussed here are preliminary and exploratory and they are based on empirical data from an on-going study.
