Filmed images dominate our time, from the movies and TV that entertain us to the news and documentary that inform us and shape our cultural vocabulary. Crossing disciplinary boundaries, Fields of Vision is a path-breaking collection that inquires into the power (and limits) of film and photography to make sense of ourselves and others. As critics, social scientists, filmmakers, and literary scholars, the contributors converge on the issues of representation and the construction of visual meaning across cultures. From the dismembered bodies of horror film to the exotic bodies of ethnographic film and the gorgeous bodies of romantic cinema, Fields of Vision moves through eras, genres, and societies. Always asking how images work to produce meaning, the essays address the way the "real" on film creates fantasy, news, as well as "science," and considers this problematic process as cultural boundaries are crossed. One essay discusses the effects of Hollywood's high-capital, world-wide commercial hegemony on local and non-Western cinemas, while another explores the response of indigenous people in central Australia to the forces of mass media and video. Other essays uncover the work of the unconscious in cinema, the shaping of "female spectatorship" by the "women's film" genre of the 1920s, and the effects of the personal and subjective in documentary films and the photographs of war reportage. In illuminating dark, elided, or wilfully neglected areas of representation, these essays uncover new fields of vision.… (més)

I only have this on inter library loan, and the short loan period means that I've only had time to read five chapters, which is very frustrating. But it has been a fascinating first foray into anthropology. I wanted to gain a small understanding of the academic world of Leslie Devereaux, one of the editors, and I've enjoyed the juxtaposition of the multidisciplinary perspectives. The depiction of the "real" via film or photography highlights the lens(es) through which we view the world, with or without conscious awareness of the fact that our vision is limited by angle, context, physical and emotional perspective, and point of focus. I find myself disturbed by some of the images; for example, the "creation of knowledge" by the ethnographer appears to place the ethnographer as the site of power, with the "object" of study being passive and only becoming a source of knowledge when actively studied by the academic. And yet, there are wonderful viewpoints that act as counterpoint to this argument, referring to the creative understanding that occurs when we attempt to recognise our own selves and simultaneously see the world through the eyes of another - when an interaction allows each party to ask questions of the other that the other wouldn't think to ask for themselves. Knowledge is created in the moment. This is a great book for posing questions and for exploring meanings. ( )
