Slow scholarship offers an alternative way to do research, yet its implications for visual practice and production remain implicit. In this article, I translate and apply key notions of slow scholarship to visual practice and production, in particular that slower can be a better and more care-full way of doing research. This gap is filled by re-purposing existing methods (time-series, inconvenience sampling, replicable) to capture what I deem the “slow city,” that is the everyday fabrics of urban areas that tend to be ignored and vulnerable to slow violence. My own counter-visualization applies these insights through three case studies, which map onto longitudinal methods (slow violence, care-full research) and translocal, replicable methods (the untagged city).
