Item description for De Bril Van Anceaux/Anceaux's Glasses: Volkenkundige Fotografie Vanaf 1860/Anthropological Photography Since 1860 (German Edition) by Linda Roodenburg...

In 1959, the renowned Dutch linguist Anceaux went on the last Dutch expedition to the interior of Dutch New Guinea. Anceaux gave his glasses to one of the Papuans. Expedition leader Brongersma made a photograph of the event. This photograph is not only symbolic of the Western view of other cultures, but also of how amusing our culture sometimes seemed to them.

No sooner was photography invented, than the National Museum for Ethnology began collecting photographs of people and cultures from all over the world. Until recently they were hidden away in the archives. Now, this book brings together a varied selection: rare pictures of cultures that have since changed completely or disappeared altogether. The historical background to the collection is concisely described by Linda Roodenburg, Gosewijn van Beek, Eric Venbrux, Philip Jones, and Nol Wentholt. They look at the colonial system, anthropological research, how the attraction of exotic cultures has been exploited, and the way our attitude towards alien cultures has changed over the years. The numerous full-page photographs also really speak for themselves.
