Anthropology and Photography, 1860-1920
by Elizabeth Edwards
Publisher's Description
"This fascinating book is the first serious study of the place of photography in anthropology and the contribution it can make to an understanding of the ethnographic past. Focusing on still photography in British anthropology from about 1860 until 1920, it examines the content and contexts of 157 photographs--many reproduced here for the first time--showing how to `read' the images and how they are used in conjunction with more traditional forms of anthropological information."--the publisher. Published in conjunction with the Royal Anthropological Institute of London.
