  Abstract Visual data have been of concern to the social sciences in two ways: visual records produced by the investigator, and visual documents produced by those under study. In recent years, however, this dichotomy between the observer and the observed has begun to collapse (as it has across the qualitative social sciences more generally) and a third kind of visual record or more accurately representation has emerged: the collaborative representation. Marcus Banks is a lecturer in social anthropology at the University of Oxford, author of 'Ethnicity: anthropological constructions' (Routledge, 1996), and co-editor of 'Rethinking visual anthropology' (Yale).
