Participatory and Visual Methods (Pvm), in which images are used in a collaborative way, to learn something together, are defined the most important innovations in visual sociology and anthropology (Harper, 2012; Pink, 2012; Banks, 2007). This is particularly true in youth research where Pvm can emphasise young people’s position as active social agents, who play an important role in shaping the world around them. In this paper the author will present a reflection on a research focused on girls and boys in a multicultural working class suburb. In addition to the use of traditional ethnographic methods, she employed «walking with video» (Pink, 2008) methods adapted to the context and to the participants. The author, presenting the methodology used, will reflect on what added value visual data can give to understand the way in which young people view and represent the material immaterial and social environment.
