Starting this visual anthropology project I felt inherently uncomfortable with the idea of being an authoritative voice, or even ‘narrator’, providing an audience with my own edited version of somebody or something; my anthropological truth, if you will. As, even in the case of observational film - take MacDougall’s work for instance - yes it is observational, but choices have been made; firstly what is important enough to record and secondly what is important enough to make the edit, what fits the narrative. Do we choose something that looks beautiful; a shot that is wonderfully emotive; the capturing of a truly mundane moment; or a blur that conveys the movement and excitement in an active setting?
