Photography and Anthropology


Photography has the ability to capture the sensation of life in a way that words cannot express. In addition, it has the possibility of reaching a far vaster audience than most writers could ever imagine. More important, those that we study have a better opportunity to judge our representation of them than if we write a book about them in another language. Photography has always had a place within anthropological research but is becoming even more important because it has the ability to capture cultural reality and “life as lived” in a more enhanced way.
