Grimshaw and Ravetz (2005) Visualizing anthropology

Grimshaw, Anna and Ravetz, Amanda eds. (2005), Visualizing Anthropology (Bristol: Intellect Books). 

Questions of vision and knowledge are central to debates about the world in which we live. Developing new analytical approaches toward ways of seeing is a key challenge facing those working across a wide range of disciplines. How can visuality be understood on its own terms rather than by means of established textual frameworks? Visualizing Anthropology takes up this challenge. Bringing together a range of perspectives anchored in practice, the book maps experiments in the forms and techniques of visual enquiry.
