Abstract In this article we consider young adults' photo-narratives about smoking and quitting and their linkages to themes of healthy lifestyles and the culture of place in Vancouver, Canada. Drawing from a pilot study using participant-driven photography with a group of twelve young women and men ages nineteen to twenty-six, participants' visual and narrative representations of being a smoker and the process of quitting smoking were analyzed. Findings suggest “healthy lifestyle” imperatives within the Vancouver context may be productive for facilitating cessation, but may also have exclusionary effects.
