Promotional Information

'A masterful synthesis of his twenty years of explorations into the parallel histories of anthropology and photography, Chris Pinney's intellectual archeologies of image, observation, and evidence are at once deeply historical, deeply contemporary, deeply critical, and deeply provocative. I can't imagine a more vivid blow-up of how the photographic magic of realism mirrors and shadows the anthropological realism of magic.' -- Steven Feld, Distinguished Professor of Anthropology and Music, The University of New Mexico 'Who better than Chris Pinney to adjudicate the magic of photography with the anthropology of the image, and do so in such a marvelously succinct, smart, and lively manner? With its cornucopia of wondrous accounts of how photography is set to work outside of Western culture, this book mightily expands both the meaning of the image and the power of a photograph. A tour de force.' -- Michael Taussig
