The photographs Jacob Riis took during his investigation on the dramatic conditions of immigrants in New York, have a specific role in the construction of social analysis outside the university, and anticipate, as a method, the analyti-cal approach later developed by visual sociology. The cognitive process thus broadens the tools at its disposal and acquiring new analytical approaches. It is historically coherent with the new characteristics of social transformation and with the presence of new technological products in the society. The develop-ment of visual sociology, consistent with these premises, over time highlights the renewal within the sociological tradition not only of its theoretical focus, but also of its methodological one.
