Abstract [en]

The aim of this paper is to discuss young children's depicting of their preschool settings and what those can tell us.  What if children get access to digital cameras as documenting tools? Would that alter our understanding of children's everyday life? How can we interpret the practice of looking when the visual perspective of children meets the visual perspective of adults? In the Swedish preschool it is common for the adults to document the learning process of children. Their documentation represents the adult eyes on the everyday life and learning process of children, the children are rarely able to return the adult gaze.

The study presented in this paper is a study in progress and it is conducted as an ethnographic study in a number of different preschool settings. The focus is two folded, on one hand what do the children depict, and on the other hand what sort of intra-activity can be seen between the children, the camera and the room in the preschool setting? How can the result of this study tell us something about children´s perspective? Is it possible that visual methods and gaze perspective of small children can show us something in-between the known and the unknown of everyday life in preschool?
