Curatorial notes
 
This Visual Index will explore issues of how diverse ethnic groups have been seen by outsiders, seen themselves and come to recognise how their society has had its cultural values stereotyped and been marginalized by the views of others.

Additional examples requested
 
We are seeking to improve the range of examples shown here and welcome additions from your own collection and those of insititutions.
alan@luminous-lint.com
 
To do this section well we need input from curators, photo-historians and those who understand the contexts within which different photographs and artworks have been created.
