Abstract The new ethnographic methodology that acknowledges the subjectivity inherent in humans studying humans and embraces inter-disciplinarity has created exciting possibilities for researchers investigating the human condition as it is manifested in everyday and domestic culture. This paper discusses some of the theoretical and practical issues involved in a particular application of this new ethnography as two researchers from obsensibly different modes of inquiry - ethnography and visual arts - undertook a study into the quality of life of a small group of older Italo-Australians. The paper discusses the methodology used and the experiences that arose from the collaboration between an anthropologist and a photo-documentist.
