Since we are quite a number of people now, we could use the forum to discuss some of our own work on and around Visual Anthropology. Unfortunately (as far as my technical understanding goes) we are not able to post videos here (pictures can be added).

However we could just provide links to websites, image galleries, texts (you name it) that host our works...

Norman, I share your sentiments and am actually in the process of starting a (primarily online, although hoping to grow) journal of "sensory ethnography." We plan to have a space to showcase films, audio pieces etc in the near future in an academic forum. Let me know if you'd like to be added to our e-mailing list: I'm at julia.yezbick@gmail.com.
Best,
Julia
Thats sounds interesting, Julia. What platform are you building the site on, out of curiosity?

I have just launched the remodeled version of American Ethnography, as by now a Quasiweekly internet glossy on the tradition and practice of anything we call ethnography as it relates to whatever we call American.

The web page has some examples of my own work in visual anthropology, although it is the type of visual anthropology we often seem to forget is actually a part of the tradition: Drawings.

This page has one example: http://www.americanethnography.com/about.php (the illustration at the top of the page, of the interior of a car, is related to my field work on lowriders in the American Southwest.)

Have anybody ever read anything on drawing as part of anthropological field work? Or is the field of archeology a better place to look for this?

here my small recent work

www.anyroadwilltakeyouthere.net

with Burmese women and self representation

looking forward to read/see yours :-)

best,

maria

Hey,

here's a link to an article i published based on a university project in material culture and visual anthropology. It's called "Tracing continuity between childhood and adulthood: Body attachments and practices that persist in a growing self", and it brings together issues around objects and their role in social relations, family storytelling, the body, and age. I'd love to hear your feedback!
