About the Book
This book includes a selection of my best photographs from a period of eight years, from 2003 to 2013. They were shot in Burkina Faso and in Italy, Serbia and UK.
I am an anthropologist based in Manchester UK, where I teach ethnographic documentary at the Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, University of Manchester.. Because I think photography, video and sound recording can add so much to our knowledge of people’s lifeworlds, I use all of these three media in my ethnographic practice and I also do some graphic and web design. I derive the poetics of my works in audiovisual media from an interest in the embodied and sensory aspects of culture, all mixed with an approach inspired by phenomenology.
