Nina S. de Friedemann: Images of black existence in Colombia.

Abstract in spanish

The works realized by the anthropologist Nina S. de Friedemann throughout her personal and professional career as anthropologist, make her pioneering not only in the afrocolombian studies in Colombia, but also in visual anthropology in the country. The journeys through the Pacific coast, the continental and insular Caribbean, her particular way to writing ethnographies founded in pictures and films, as well as her insistence on the need to link the communities in the own processes of social research anytime, have made Nina de Friedemann becomes an icon of anthropology at national level. In this sense, the article pretends to highlight how Nina S. de Friedemann used image as a tool-document of social research through which is possible make visible the cultural trajectories and memories of black and afrocolombians population, which have remained apart from the history of the country by centuries.
