Excerpts from the Paper

The beginning:
Kids with Cameras
Part I: How research was carried out (the methodology and/or research method)
In order to carry out this project, and in order to keep it simplified and elegant, I went about doing things in a very straightforward manner: I commenced by interviewing three children – they were Kemi and Bukumi, 17 and 14 years of age, respectively – and I completed three interviews with each of the children. I should add that the children were the offspring of my cousin and, because of our close family ties, they were deemed as excellent subjects for my research.
During the initial meeting, I met with them to indicate that I was working on a project and that I would be returning to meet with them again to discuss things in greater detail....
The end:
..... they have a sense of how they are being manipulated and how the elite power structure is trying to turn them into docile capitalist consumers who neglect their own spiritual growth in favour of subscribing to an ideology that may not have their best interests at heart.
