Abstract

The articles in this special issue highlight the
relationality existing between researchers, participants,
cameras and images, with each article bringing
complementary perspectives on the use of digital images
in ethnographic fieldwork. These include reactivating
archives through their digitization for visual
repatriation, facilitating dialogue and understanding
between participant and researcher, analysing the
relation between participants and the virtual spaces of
their self-representations and exploring the range of
capacities for new research methodologies afforded by
digital technologies. Individually and through their
juxtaposition, the articles highlight the complexity of the
interactions between researchers and participants in
their digital encounters and open dialogical spaces, in
ethnographic fieldwork and in visual anthropology,
about access, participation and transparency in
representational practices.
