Frank Gruber 
Back to the South 1971

"In late July 1971, we spent several weeks in the South (Italy), “il Mezzogiorno,” while my father did some ethnography and my mother, an artist, sketched. There I was, in a place that was very foreign to me, with a camera, and that’s when I took these photographs. For me, the essential aspect of visual anthropology, and what should distinguish it from journalism, or “street photography,” or travel photography, is direct engagement with the subject. Meaning no subterfuge and no voyeurism. In a public setting, such as a public procession, one can infer consent from the public nature of the ceremony, but ideally the photographer engages with the people being photographed. In my best photographs, the subject looks directly into the camera. The photographer should allow his or her subjects to present themselves as they wish to be presented."
