Abstract

Interviews are widely used in qualitative research, and can take many different forms (see King and Horrocks, 2010). In this chapter, we will introduce a particular visual tool developed by the authors and colleagues for use in research interviews: the Pictor technique (e.g. King, Bravington, Brooks et al. 2013). The technique requires research participants to construct a ‘Pictor chart’ - a visual representation depicting their role and their work - which the researcher and participant can then use as a basis to explore potentially complex experiences in a research interview setting. We will present here an example from our own applied research to demonstrate how we have used Pictor in research interviews.
