9780826308993: Visual Anthropology: Photography as a Research Method

First published in 1967, Visual Anthropology has become a classic in its field, invaluable not only for anthropologists but for anyone using photography, film, and video to understand human behavior and culture. This completely revised and expanded edition brings the technical information up to date and includes the insights the Colliers have gained from nearly thirty-five additional years of collective teaching and research experience since the first edition.

From the Inside Flap:

This book provides reliable research methods from the systematic gathering of data through analysis of photographic records to transfer of insights to ethnographic records, with an emphasis on developing the skills of thorough observation rather than on technical skill.

Review:

"Because of its clarity of expression and rich wisdom it is still the one indispensable handbook in the field."

Because of its clarity of expression and rich wisdom it is still the one indispensable handbook in the field.

. . . directed at professional and student anthropologists, the book would be just as valuable to most social scientists. After reading this book it is unlikely that anyone would ever take a pictureor look at onein the same way again. Highly recommended.

. . . a comprehensive study which is both readable . . . and insightful, and which will interest any who utilize photography or anthropology as research tools.
