Visual Feasts - photographic narratives of belonging
MetadataShow full metadata
Can photography contribute to inter-generational knowledge transmission through images of food and sites of hunting and gathering? Can education of sites of significance, environmental resources and ecologies be enhanced through digital tools? Based on a current project, this presentation explores how photography can be utilized to support our relationships to customary food sources. During holiday seasons, many urban indigenous people return to tribal homes and post numerous photos of food delicacies to social media like Instagram. This produces an online visual feast of seasonal foods hunted and gathered, that reframed, creates contemporary visual narratives of belonging to land and sea.
