By thematizing educational practices developed in studies with indigenous people, quilombolas and riverside dwellers, the article identifies ethnic-racial procedures that express the manner, body and know-how in each culture, and it characterizes cultural practices adopted in unique groups. The theoretical framework describes the methodological possibility with photography, from the technical-procedural elements to deal with different cultures, when analyzing specific practices to understand the social organization. It concludes that attention in dealing with sensitive knowledge and visual language precedes the epistemic perception of the studied group, in the understanding of cultural knowledge and practices, and the results may have changed if other methodological procedures were adopted.
