Portraiture is a method of inquiry that shares some of the features of other qualitative research methods-such as ethnography, case study, and narrative-but it is distinctive in its blending of aesthetics and empiricism i ...show moren an effort to capture the complexity, dynamics, and subtlety of human experience and organizational life. Portraiture first came to prominence in the works of Sara Lawrence-Lightfoot, who used it to document the culture of schools, the life stories of individuals, and the relationships among families, communities, and schools.
