Study of Kin by Marcia Michael balance early photographic representation of the colonial “other” with the scientific, documentary nature of classification. The collection is based on the visual landscape that has been mapped and codified by photographers, anthropologists, criminologists, biological racialists and eugenicists, who added to the competing discourses on race during the 19th and 20th centuries. Through these images the artist has visualised the sitters, in particular in the portrait work, as carriers of that past. The title refers to the study of man to which looks at anthropological and ethnographical ways of seeing difference. However in this case, the artist’s family are the ones being looked at, hence the use of the term ‘Kin’.
