I choose this picture because it represents anthropological work at the time it was taken rather well. Though it is unclear weather the european men in the picture are anthropologists or just some government officials, it is obvious to see the interest in foreign culture but more so in a documenting way. The picture shows a part of colonial rule and is in my opinion a very captivating document of history. I would want to have it in my collection because I think it makes anthropological work espacially in a historic context better imaginable.
