Subject, Author, and Audience in Visual Anthropology
W. Matthew Ball (5/97)
I. Introduction
"Why and for whom do we put the camera amongst people? Strangely enough, my first response to this will always be the same: 'For myself'." - Jean Rouch, The Camera and Man I n This paradox is but the first of many problems anthropologists have had to take up with visual anthropology. Another immediate question is Why do visual anthropology? How are photographic methods and their resulting products valuable to anthropology, and what do the ethnographer, his audience, or the people studied have to gain from such a seemingly problematic practice? Aside from epistemological considerations, there are many concerns with methodology, analysis, and presentation in visual anthropology which still have not been resolved. So why is visual anthropology being practiced today? Because despite its problems, it is a practice which has the potential for increased anthropological understanding of the cultures it touches. By its nature, it is a practice which like ethnography itself adds to our existing knowledge base of the many differing cultures of our world. As human beings, we can not know what it is to be another human being. The history of anthropological theory can attest to this empirical truth. Nor can we know a culture as we know our own. But the goals of visual anthropology are the same as the larger discipline itself - to increase our understanding of others beyond current levels through the study and interpretation of culture. We can only gain increased understanding through the continuing efforts to this end with efficient use of increasingly viable visual technology. Margaret Mead begins the book

The Ur-List: Web Resources for Visual Anthropology facilitates web searches by cross-indexing three hundred and seventy-five anthropological sites according to the categories of information they contain. The Ur-List's cross-index is more accurate than most Web-resource guides which typically reduce a site's multifaceted content to only one category. In the Ur-List, sites may be accessed according to the twenty-two subject-categories listed above. Multifaceted sites are cross-referenced under all appropriate categories. A mouse-click selection of any of the subject-categories gives access to two kinds of Web resources. The first is dedicated exclusively to the subject that was selected. For example, Wendy Vissar's dark visual ethnography of rural Albania, Lekso's Codebox is listed only once under the "Dedicated Sites" heading of "Visual Ethnographies" (Category 5). The second kind of resources accessed are listed under multiple Ur-List categories.

This was an area of fascination for me during my undergrad years at Oberlin College. Visual Anthropology is the discipline concerned with the visual representation of culture. Just as a written ethnography is a textual account of the anthropologist's contact and observation of another culture, a visual ethnography is a filmic account of this.

11. Ruby & Chalfen Visual Anthro At Temple
Jay Ruby and Richard Chalfen challenge the idea that film is art and science is an objective chronicler of reality in an article that discusses the difficulties experienced in the development of a truly anthropological cinema.
THE SOCIETY FOR THE ANTHROPOLOGY OF VISUAL COMMUNICATION NEWSLETTER VOL 5 NO 3, SPRING 1974:5-7 THE TEACHING OF VISUAL ANTHROPOLOGY AT TEMPLE Jay Ruby and Richard Chalfen (A paper originally presented at the 1973 American Anthropological Association Meetings, New Orleans) The teaching of visual anthropology at Temple University has two larger contexts which, to some degree, define and give a specific focus to the training. The first is a departmental philosophy of graduate education and the second is the fact that this training occurs within a program of graduate studies in culture and communication. (Other graduate program emphases include urban anthropology and biocultural adaptation.) Graduate education in anthropology at Temple is based on the traditional assumption that anthropologists should have a foundation in all areas of their discipline. Students are required to pass comprehensive examinations in linguistics, archaeology, and cultural and physical anthropology. Only after successful completion of these exams are students encouraged to specialize. Students with an interest in visual communication pursue their specialty within the broader context of the culture and communication program. The program is designed to train students of anthropology who wish to study various modes of communication in a cultural context. The basic assumption underlying the program is that all communicative, interactive, and expressive forms of behavior are legitimate subjects of anthropological inquiry.

Visual Anthropology by Joseph Flaherty From Vol. 1, no. 2 (April 1972) back to 25 Years Visual anthropology, for all of its Robert Flahertys' and Edward Curtis' of the past, is a relatively new and open area of the social sciences exhibiting all of the adolescent insecurities (and possibilities) inherent in the growing process. The recent Anthropological and Documentary Film Conference held at Temple University in Philadelphia said as much about the nature and structure of conferences as it did about the subject of visual anthropology. It was, however, an important arena for bringing some important questions into the open. The fact that few answers were given was of little importance; the time and setting called more for whys than hows. A split developed first and most obviously over the old question of visual versus verbal anthropology: can pictures as well as words serve as objective data? One anthropologist suggested that the only way film could be useful as an objective tool would be to turn the camera on and let it run twenty-four hours a day. While this was admittedly one of the more extreme suggestions, it reflected a still-held distrust, not especially of the camera, but of its operator. A constant criticism of the films shown and especially of Robert Gardner's Dead Birds The Bikeriders

18. Media Anthropology
Updated version of an article from the Spring 1991 issue of Commission on visual anthropology Review.
This article originally appeared in Commission on Visual Anthropology Review, Spring, 1991. DR. RON BURNETT ARCHIVES 1994-99 Thus what is important about experiments in community radio is the way in which they allow disenfranchised members of the community to enter into the technology of sound, to engage with the technology not so much to produce a representation which communicates but to participate in the creative process. Yet as Christopher Pinney has argued in a recent issue of the "Studies in Visual Anthropology" the residual effects of naturalism, which has been a guiding element in the development of ethnographic films and videos, remains in place in even the most progressive of texts, those premised on self-reflexivity and on a critique of ethnographic truth. This is because ethnography still sees fieldwork as the underpinning for the discipline, as the basis upon which images as such, can be produced. ãGiven this historical legacy of a particular method of data production the whole project of anthropology remains dependent on the acknowledgement that the whole thing is the product of the individual being there, being Îexposed to the lightâ. Within this inescapable parameter, reflexivity, the Îcrack in the mirrorâ always becomes further proofs, further guarantees of the truth of the representation.ä3 But the Slapins-Podnieks imagery is striking because it comes from, springs out of, a deep sense of disenfranchisement. The voice which speaks in their films is experimental, documentary, fictional, ethnographic. Their's is a postmodern assemblage in the tradition of Trin Minh-ha, a self-reflexivity which does not have to declare itself. Its modus-operandi from the start is to make the medium speak because it has been silenced for so long. Their films echo with the excitement of discovery as if the medium of film has been dormant for decades, as if the forms we have grown accustomed to can be remade, reworked. Their fearless use of montage echoes Eisenstein and Dziga-Vertov, a combination which neither could have forseen and which neither would have desired.

The Society for Visual Anthropology ( SVA), a section of the American Anthropological Association, promotes the study of visual representation and media . Both research methods and teaching strategies fall within the scope of the society. SVA members are involved in all aspects of production, dissemination, and analysis of visual forms. Works in film, video, photography, and computer-based multimedia explore signification, perception, and communication-in-context, as well as a multitude of other anthropological and ethnographic themes.
Founded in 1984, the Society for Visual Anthropology promotes the use of images for the description, analysis, communication and interpretation of human [and sometimes nonhuman) behavior. Members have interests in all visual aspects of culture, including art, architecture and material artifacts, as well as kinesics, proxemics and related forms of body motion communication (e.g. gesture, emotion, dance, sign language).
The Society encourages the use of media, including

Society for Folk Arts Preservation, Inc.
ABOUT THE SOCIETY The Society for Folk Arts Preservation, Inc. (SFAP) was founded in 1977 as a not-for-profit, 501C3 tax exempt, educational and cultural organization to act as a repository or archive for visual craft techniques in danger of disappearing throughout the world. By means of the production of films, video and audio tapes, SFAP seeks to preserve, document, and disseminate these techniques for the use of artists, anthropologists, social scientists, and the interested public. The Society was formed by an international group of artists, visual anthropologists, art historians, and folklorists concerned with the continuity of quality in the visual arts. The term folk arts as we see it, covers a broad area of still-living traditions which must be recorded, for, in a sense, only time will tell what will endure. Our main areas of interest are the intuitive art, in visual form, of the traditional craftsworker and the craft traditions handed down from generation to generation.
