About this Collection

This collection consists of photographs taken by University of California, Irvine anthropology professor emeritus Frank Cancian (1934-2020) during three separate projects in 1957, 1971, and 1973-2002.

The collection comprises three sub-collections of photographs that illustrate the variety of anthropological studies performed by Cancian during his career. The Lacedonia photographs document the people and places in a small town in Italy in 1957. The Zinacantan photographs document the people and places in and around Zinacantan, Mexico in 1971. The Orange County Housecleaners photographs document the working lives of housecleaning staff in Orange County, California between 1971 - 2002.
