1. 'The Anthropologist as Photographer: Reading the Monograph and Reading the Archive', by Christopher Morton. Reproduced by kind permission of Taylor & Francis. read PDF version

In this article, first published in the journal <Visual Anthropology> In 2005, Morton critically addresses a number of issues raised in an earlier article by Barbara Wolbert published in the same journal in 2000, which took as its central case-study the photographs published in E. E. Evans-Pritchard's classic monograph The Nuer . Morton takes a closer look at the archival evidence and historical contexts surrounding some of these well-known images as well as the production of the book itself, arguing that such evidence ultimately undermines the theoretical assumptions Wolbert makes about Evans-Pritchard's use of photography.
