Abstract

The aim of this article is to reflect upon the concept of field when doing ethnographies related to digital technologies of communication in everyday life. Using the example of ethnographic fieldwork carried out by one of the authors with a group of highly mediated photographers in Barcelona, we reflect on the conceptualization of fieldwork in digital ethnographies and discuss how ‘Practice Theory’ could be useful as a basis for media and digital ethnographies.
