Book Description Oxford University Press, 2011. Hardcover. Condition: New. From earlyon, photography has been a valuable tool for anthropologists to record ethnographic data. Early anthropology celebrated photography as a physical record but later photography was criticized for failing to capture movement and process. Anthropology, as a discipline, thus found itself engaged with photography as metaphor for the collection of evidence. Looking at the close relationship between anthropology, photography, and the anthropological theory of photography, this volume explores how anthropology provides helpful tools to re-imagine the power and magic of all photographic practices. It draws upon an intimate knowledge of the history of anthropology, photography, and the world`s major anthropological practitioners, and presents an engaging account of anthropologists` use of photography from the 1840s to the present. Deeply provocative and engaging, in this work Pinney explores photography as a prophetic practice that prompted anthropologists to capture the `primitive` lives of those they studied.
