A Site for Visual Anthropology

"Madonna" ©1993 Leslie Plaza Johnson

This site is dedicated to visual anthropology, a scientific and humanistic method of ethnographic investigation. This method of research employs the visual media to observe, record, interpret, and translate the human experience in a manner that is interesting, informative, relevant, and applicable. The visual media--still photography, video, and other visual expressions--are also the subjects of investigation, as they inform our perceptions of the world. My interests in this field include the visual examination of cultural constructions based on religion, the manner in which visual symbols inform individual and collective identity, and the study of how images collude with textual information to create culture.
