The author introduces a new paradigm for collecting visual ethnographic material in a dynamic and interactive fashion and describes how the same model can also be as a conflict mediation device to enhance understanding across cultural or political divides. The “24 Picture Day” paradigm uses mobile phone cameras or inexpensive, non-professional digital still cameras to let people on both sides of a conflict experience each other’s point of view through a new media storytelling experience.
