A Birthing of Incipient Applied Visual Anthropology in the 'Media Invisible' Villages of Western India

In 2001, Gujarat, India, suffered a terrible earthquake. This chapter examines insights that emerged from the use of visual anthropological .eld methodology and indigenous video innovation in this crisis. With an indigenous testimonial concept couched in the phrase, joyun ae janyu, (to see is to understand), and with visual anthropological methods of investigation, as well as evaluation tools that I call 'the visual ethnography methods and technologies instrument.' I examine the actions of several competing agencies in a belt of 'media invisible' desert villages in Jhalavad in Sauvrastra. These agencies include the central Government of India and its provincial and village authorities, international donor agencies, television organisations, religious charities and caste organisations. The results offer new pragmatic options with which to address the despair of victims and alleviate their suffering.
