Chris Pinney shepherds yet another compelling project that blends critical and ethnographic methods to explore how photography is an essential technology for citizenship, belonging, solidarity, and the crucial resource of the political imagination.
“Ambitious in its theoretical and ethnographic reach, this vital volume robustly explores the unruly political potentialities of photography while laying out multiple directions for a future anthropology of photography. Citizens of Photography is a landmark book.” — Karen Strassler, author of Demanding Images: Democracy, Mediation, and the Image-Event in Indonesia
