Abstract:The book presents photographs taken in what is now northern Tanzania by Lutheran missionaries from Leipzig in the first four decades of the twentieth century. It touches briefly upon certain fields of everyday life (gender, medicine, schools, architecture, 'other' customs) and upon ways in which photographs were used for publicity. Other chapters deal with the portrayal of missionary children, of music and dance, and of the landscape. Contributors: Adam Jones, Julia Kitschke, Sabrina Schmidt, Ingrid Smith, Iuliia Subbotska, Zoltan Szep, Annelies Pletschke, Kathrin Reese, Michaela Unterholzner, Polina Axenova, Karsten Jahn and Robert B. Munson. [ASC Leiden abstract]
