“...there’s a great deal social researchers doing visual work can learn from Pink’s book…It’s a valuable resource for researchers, activists, and social service workers looking for innovative visual methodologies for collaborative research and social intervention. It makes an excellent contribution to the ongoing academic debate over the value of applied and visual social research, as well.”  ·  Contexts, Magazine of the American Sociological Association


Visual anthropology has proved to offer fruitful methods of research and representation to applied projects of social intervention. Through a series of case studies based on applied visual anthropological work in a range of contexts (health and medicine, tourism and heritage, social development, conflict and disaster relief, community filmmaking and empowerment, and industry) this volume examines both the range contexts in which applied visual anthropology is engaged, and the methodological and theoretical issues it raises.

Sarah Pink is a social anthropologist whose research includes a focus on visual methodologies and the relationship between applied and academic anthropology. Her books include Doing Visual Ethnography (2001), Home Truths (2004), Working Images (2004) and Applications of Anthropology (2005). She is Professor of Design and Emerging Technology at Monash University, Australia.
