This chapter draws on the shared reflections and tensions from collaborative research in an experience sampling method project exploring the use of the visual, particularly photography, in investigating everyday life experiences. The research was conducted among work colleagues at a higher education institution. When the group reflected on the process of the research and potential interpretations of data, ethical issues became apparent. In this chapter, in line with the critical perspective of the book, we take the opportunity to reflect upon these ethical issues, privileging dissenting voices in the group reflections. The chapter documents the tensions inherent in the visual research focusing on power relations, with the intention of rethinking and reconceptualising well-worn assumptions and structured formal ethical guidelines around informed consent, privacy in research contexts and reflexivity.
