Images of anthropologists, anthropologists in images.

Abstract in spanish

The trajectory of anthropologic task with images sends to the quarrel of the construction of this knowledge as well as the a of the identity of the anthropologist in action. The anthropologist, who from the called after-modern ethnography, already was present in the writing while plus a ethnography character, now also he presents yourself in the images (photographic or videographic) contained in the anthropologic text. We saw generations of anthropologists if to abstain to appear through images in the carried through ethnographies, but recently, works bring the intentional inclusion of the image of the researcher searching to make it clear the intensity and meaning of the ethnographic meeting. It is intended, from a survey of theses, dissertations and monographic works of the PPGAS/UFRGS - in special
the works deriving or assisted by the projects of research NAVISUAL/BIEV - to argue the strategies that these anthropologists are presenting when including intentionally its images in interaction with the searched ones.
