Also starting this one for medical anthropology. I know it‘s going to be heavy, but I‘m grateful for the opportunity to learn more about some complex lived experiences that shape the work so many people I know and love have dedicated their lives to.

A great example of a photoethnography. Demonstrates a variety of ethnographic approaches. Ties the personal experiences of homeless heroin addicts to a larger social context, illustrating how social and institutional forces contribute to addiction and homelessness.
