This e-book brings the visible measurement of environmental crimes and harms into the sphere of eco-friendly criminology. It exhibits how photographic photos gives you a way for eliciting narratives from those who dwell in polluted parts – describing intimately and from their standpoint what they recognize, imagine and believe in regards to the fact during which they locate themselves residing. Natali makes the argument for constructing a visible procedure for eco-friendly criminology, with a unmarried case-study as its significant concentration, revealing the significance of utilizing picture elicitation to understand and increase the reflexive and energetic function of social actors within the symbolic and social development in their environmental reviews. interpreting the a number of interactions among the photographs and the phrases used to explain the socio-environmental worlds within which we are living, this publication is a decision to open the eyes of eco-friendly criminology to wider and richer explorations of environmental harms and crimes.

As a green criminologist, my © The Author(s) 2016 L. 1057/978-1-137-54668-5_4 51 52 A VISUAL APPROACH FOR GREEN CRIMINOLOGY attention was focused on the environmental harm and its visual traces and, after this phase, I had many photographs—and many questions. Indeed, the visual data one collects offer a considerable amount of information, while still posing many questions, and reveal much about the “objects” observed and “caught” in precise contexts.

In my diary I jot down a reflection: what I am doing is looking at the environmental crime and conflict in Huelva through the eyes of its inhabitants. It’s a bit like “assuming the attitudes,” the points of view of Huelva about itself and its conflict, entering into and taking part in the conversations and in the “inner reflections” that animate and make “real” what is happening. I am trying to observe and listen to the “divided soul” of the town (Fig. 10) . . All these annotations (I have offered only a small sample) are essential moments of the reflexive attitude necessary for the close exploration of an extremely complex field of investigation, such as the environmental field, and for constructing, step by step, a possible range of hypotheses.
