Anthropology. Visual.



Victor d’Allant (seen here on top of Mt. Fuji, Japan) is a Paris-born Visual Anthropologist whose work includes mental health issues in the developing world for the World Health Organization, and agricultural development in Burkina Faso for the World Bank. A six-year grantee of the Ford Foundation for his work on urban equity, he has also consulted for the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation on the role of technology in social change.

His photographs have been exhibited at the Museum of Modern Art in Paris, and published in GEO, Newsweek and many magazines in Europe and Asia. The video blog he produced for the Skoll Foundation’s online community received an Honoree Mention at the Webby Awards (Webbies).


Currently living between San Francisco and Paris, Victor holds an MA and ABD in Cultural Anthropology from the Sorbonne, and an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas School of Business. 

His first book TULSA, OK is now available here and in several bookstores in Los Angeles, Paris, and Tokyo.
