There is growing interest in 'more-than-human' influences on places and practices. However, while the theoretical thinking in this field is well developed, methodology and methods lag behind. Borrowing insights from feminist geographers' articulation of 'response', we explore how participatory photography can be used to examine more-than-human processes through a case study of marginal homemaking in Khulna city in Bangladesh. Our photo-response method focuses on performances of seeing, telling and being together to enhance the co-production of 'knowledges'. We conclude that analysing three stages of 'response' within participatory photography provides new insights for conducting research in, with and as more-than-human worlds.
