Disciplinary visuality can be significantly affected by the chosen form of visual data generation. Researchers should therefore consider which is the most appropriate visual methodology for a given study (whether respondent or researcher driven). More specifically, is the intent to produce ‘images to study society’ or inform the ‘sociological study of images’ (Banks 2007)? • All research within an applied visual sociology should be conducted in a manner that is ethically approved and ethically robust (as with ‘conventional’ social science research).

However, it was not clear if the speaker had personally recorded all (or any) the images – or if they had been obtained from/supplied by secondary sources with an advocacy interest in ‘rights’ for sex workers. However, all images presented were used to provide illustrations of the structural control of women’s bodies and to support the advocacy campaign of the speaker concerned. Nevertheless, one such image depicted a so-called ‘naming and shaming’ ritual by statutory authorities in China and appeared to show female sex workers on ‘public display’ with their heads covered (and possibly their hands bound) in a municipal location of an unnamed city.

Indeed, this may be evidenced by the formation of interest groups such as the Visual Sociology Study Group of the British Sociological Association, the bi-annual International Visual Methods Conference and the ever-expanding literature and journals (such as Visual Methodologies, Visual Sociology and Visual Studies) dedicated to academic accounts of visual research. Nevertheless, despite this rapid expansion, the criticisms outlined by Ball and Smith (1992) relating to the ‘visual’ in sociology remain valid over two decades after they were initially raised.
