Wayfinding: a photoethnography of indigenous migration

Anthropologists Dolly Kikon and Bengt G. Karlsson collaborated with photographer Andrzej Markiewicz to trace indigenous migrants from the borderland of Northeast India between 2013–2015. Kikon and Karlsson are working on a book manuscript entitled “Leaving the Land: Indigenous Migration from the Resource Frontier to the Urban Sprawl in India”. This exhibition is part of a research project based at Stockholm University and financed by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (The Swedish Foundation for Humanities and Social Sciences).

Bengt G. Karlsson is Professor of Anthropology at the Department of Social Anthropology, Stockholm University.

Dolly Kikon is an anthropologist. She teaches Development Studies and Anthropology at the University of Melbourne.
