This article describes visual juxtaposition as an inquiry through contrast, facilitated by side-by-side positioning of two images, or images and text.
When combined with a theoretical foundation that explores interactions between the material and discursive elements of visual data, juxtaposition creates opportunities for qualitative analysis that are not as readily apparent when individual images are considered.
Analytic extensions of this practice are described as archival, spatial, multimodal, and intertextual.
