Description - The Art and Science of Portraiture by Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot

Portraiture is a method of inquiry that shares some of the features of other qualititative research methods - such as ethnography, case study and narrative - but is distinctive in its blending of aesthetics and empiricism in an effort to capture the complexity, dynamics, and subtleties ot the subject. This contribution to the field of research methodology illuminates the origins, purposes and features of portraiture, placing it within the larger discourse on social science inquiry and mapping it onto the broader terrain of qualitative research.
