A portrait of Papua 6 memento september 2001 A portrait of Papua FEWilliams has been described as one of the most talented and productive anthropologists of his generation. Australian born and Oxford trained, he spent 20 years as government anthropologist in the Australian Territory of Papua. In the 1920s and 30s he took about 2000 photographs while visiting 18 different ethnographic locations all over the territory. Now over 200 of his images appear in An Anthropologist in Papua: The Photography of FE Williams, 1922--39, co-published by the National Archives and Crawford House Publishing. This rich collection of black and white photographs is accompanied by personal commentary and a substantial introductory essay by social anthropologist Michael Young and historian and curator Julia Clark. Williams' fieldwork in Papua was unprecedented in its breadth and duration. His research is revealed through his photographs and extracts from his diaries. This fascinating publication shows us the people of Papua through the eyes of an anthropologist in colonial times. Copies can be purchased for $69.95 (plus $5.00 postage) by phoning Publications Sales on (02) 6212 3609, emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or visiting our offices.
