This may be an off-the-wall suggestion, but there are several qualitative
researchers in education who interview kids and their parents on many topics.
Topics that may, in fact, have some pictorial or visual material that
has been part of the study...video stuff during the interview, etc.  That
is becoming the newest "hot" way to gather qualitative info.  These videos
probably have the look of the stuff done in cinema verite style by the
the Lords back in the early 70's...but they might be interesting from a doc
point of view...If anybody is interested in pursuing this area of video
and cinema, there is a Qualitative Research Listserv...QUALRS, which might
be able to help locate such material.. If anyone is interested I'll post the
internet address.
