The Art of Anthropology showcases the work of 28 ANU anthropologists at different stages of their career, working on a variety of topics.

Despite the varying subject matter covered in these photographs, there is a shared ethos, a commonality of purpose: that of giving a glimpse into the worlds of the people who told us their stories and invited us into their lives.

This exhibition was born from the desire to share the work of ANU anthropologists with students and academics from other disciplines and with the wider community.

The photographs tell stories about a changing world, and moments caught at the crossroads of influences, ages, and cultures. The stories they tell are about the ways in which people shape the world around themselves, and how they are shaped by it, be it through religious, artistic, political or ethnographic practice.

The exhibition includes 56 photographs from the School of Archaeology and Anthropology and the College of Asia and Pacific. This is the second ethnographic photography exhibition organised by ANU anthropology postgraduate students. We hope there will be many more in the coming years.
