Document, Symbol, Propaganda
This chapter discusses the use of photography in interpreting folklore. Cameras can be used to record folk contexts to provide visual documentation of realities. Since its first use in the 1830s, the camera was used to manipulate folk life as a subject, carefully recording rural folk life. The chapter adds that folk realities can be recycled into images that show folk contexts as symbols, propaganda, or even commercial concepts.
