Welcome!

Thank you for visiting our WordPress site for Anthropology 50.17: Rites of Passage. Here you will find our gallery displaying our digital photo essay, “Circumcision as a Rite of Passage Across Cultures.”

We intend for your experience to be first and foremost about the images themselves. Therefore, the gallery page is intentionally plain. It contains no information about the cultures depicted, and the photographs are presented in no particular order. You are free to study the pieces and make your own judgments and inferences. Should one particularly intrigue you, please click on the image to find information about the background of the rite and the artistic choices undertaken in the rite’s rendering.

Enjoy!
