Exhibition: Photography as a research method The photographic exhibition brings together an international group of social researchers/artist who

use photography as a methodology. The exhibition would open a space to discuss but also to show how the practice of photography can be of value to anthropology, social research and beyond.

Title: Folklore and Stardom
Folklore and tradition on one side, stardom and fashion on the other are terms which usually seem to sit in opposition. I am proposing a series of photographs that challenge this opposition and show a context in which these terms are open to negotiation. 2 - Author: Evangelia Katsaiti (V08)

Title: Dedicated to
The photographs are a visual recount of my feelings of loss (grief) in a creative life narrative in which I have used photography as both a social science and an art practice in a combined research methodology. The photographs mediate my struggle to control memory in the small community of my family and were intended to control my power over negotiating self identity. The art project is about the feelings of devastation created by the loss of a family member and is used in an effort to overcome it. In doing so I explore photography as a tool mediating loss and how that is communicated and received in a culturally shared environment.

Title: Recalling the Dead: photography and material culture in the cemeteries of Álvaro Obregón, México City
This photographic essay explores how through daily and yearly cycles, the bereaved, mourners and workers develop and maintain intricate funerary rituals involving the dead buried in the cemeteries of Mexico City. A more extensive use of photography became a valuable social research tool, especially when looking at the interactions between the dead, memory and the visual material worlds that assist the living, the dead and the ánima (spirit/soul) to stay connected in the spaces in which they interact. 6 - Author: Stephen Parkin (V08/6) – (Giving a paper on V06 but exhibiting his work on V08)

Title: Frontline: A Photo-Ethnography of Drug Using Environments

Tittle: Ostranenie in Cape Town This exhibition explores how a particular method of ethnographic research based on urban movement and the dramatization of lived experience can generate a process of defamiliarisation with a city's places. The images explores my research conducted in post-Apartheid Cape Town.

Tittle: Occupation // Structures of the Berlin Brigade
With photography as a method and product I conduct an architectural anthropology of physical structures built by or used by the US military in former West Berlin. Sites in various stages of use and decay as well as the users with connections to the structures are photographed to examine how relationships to political structures are created and change over time.
