What is “The Picture”?

The Picture is a genre that explains research findings or experiences through a photograph and an accompanying short piece of text. Whilst in other formats, photos are used to underline the text, this encourages the opposite: the text should underline the photo, and the photo should be outstanding.



TRANSFORMATIONS is a medium through which dedicated and critical anthropologists put their thoughts, experiences and research insights up for discussion using a full range of digital opportunities including text, images, audio and video. We connect our research with themes of a broad public relevance, while also making the personal and often emotional act of research in social and cultural anthropology accessible to a wider audience. We aim for a creative, rich and accessible style of writing that is easy to understand, so that we can put people and their life-stories into the spotlight.
