Abstract or Description

Repeat photography has emerged as a popular tool in visualising climate change, yet has been employed relatively little by visual environmental anthropologists. Based on research in Tanzania’s South Pare Mountains, this paper demonstrates that repeat photography can be a powerful method for environmental anthropologists both practically and epistemologically: repeat photography as a practice integrates well with ethnography, whilst the contradictions emerging through multi-modal research help us reflect on the narratives about environmental change we encounter and write ourselves. At the same time, in-depth ethnography is crucial for understanding the lived experience and wider politico-economic dimensions of landscape change not visible through repeat photography alone.
