Participatory video-making represents a significant opportunity within urban geography. Reflecting on two participatory video-making processes in Seville, Spain, this article examines, firstly, the epistemological opportunities contained within a participatory video-making process. Specifically, it reflects on the potentials and limitations of participatory video as a mode of urban geographical inquiry. Secondly, this article draws on critical urban theory to examine the dialectical relations between the practice of participatory video-making and the social production of urban space. In doing so, the article sets out a potential approach toward constructing a critical ontology of urban geographical research, which elucidates the relations between research, methodology, subject, and place.
