Olympus XA-2 - 50p camera project II

Local Anthrophotography

I’ve long had a fascination with people.  I am an armchair anthropologist.  That is where my photography seems to be heading – capturing human culture, including their artifacts, on emulsions of silver salt.  I can’t think of a better subject than people and their incredible cultures.  Humans can be incredibly destructive and harmful.  Yet, I can’t think of another known form of Life, that creates such a diversity of culture.  That’s what I want to capture.

I should lay claim to the word anthrophotography  – is it copyright?  I’m an anthrophotographer.  What are you?
