Questions of vision and knowledge are central to debates about the world in which we live Developing new analytical approaches toward ways of seeing is a key challenge facing those working across a wide range of disciplines How can visuality be understood on its own terms rather than by means of established textual frameworks Visualizing Anthropology takes up this challenge Bringing together a range of perspectives anchored in practice, the book maps experiments in the forms and techniques of visual enquiry This book is essential reading for any student of visual anthropology and will be an inspiring text for academic researchers and practitioners across the social sciences and humanities The origins of this collection lie in visual anthropology Although the field has greatly expanded and diversified, many of the key debates continue to be focused around the textual concerns of the mainstream discipline In seeking to establish a genuinely visual anthropology, the editors have sought to forge links with other kinds of image based projects Ethnography is the shared space of practice Understood not as a specialized method but as cultural critique, the book explores new collaborative possibilities linked to image based work Sarah Pink, Loughborough University The editors have brought together a range of thought provoking essays about the current state of visual anthropology in Britain this book will certainly be a key text in my own visual anthropology teaching Christopher Wright, Goldsmiths College, London
