“Visual anthropology” is a term representing two different areas, i. e. “Film” and “ethnography”. Both fields employ certain methodologies and techniques to study various phenomena and developments. Need not to say that there are relatively big differences between these two fields rising out of their intrinsic disparities and methodological variations. The former deals with written texts and starts with theoretical principles and ends with analysis and reports, while the latter works with “celluloid tape”, beginning with ideas and concluding with filming and achievements. The question “how one could reach a sequence- and shot-based anthropological thinking through a written-text-based anthropological thinking” is answered in the present study. Taking a quick look at these two different fields, the article, further explains visual anthropology formation process, representation of feelings in visual anthropology and the related outstanding distinctions.
