This chapter draws on the shared reflections and tensions from collaborative research in an experience sampling method (ESM) 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. In the current project, further developing the ESM method, participants photographed their activity at preprogrammed times, taped oral descriptions of activities and answered questionnaires concerning the activity and their subjective assessment of the activity. This enabled the building of a pictured account of everyday experience.
