👆

Description: Travelling far from home often means we’re immersed in a different culture and set of customs. And while this change in perspective can inspire us to capture our experiences through our camera’s lens, we might not be fully aware of the appropriate etiquette when snapping photos. (Author’s note belongs to this picture.)

 

家から遠く離れて旅行するということは、異なる文化や習慣に没頭していることを意味することがよくあります. この心理的遠近法の変化は、カメラのレンズを通して私達の貴重な体験として捉える気にさせますが、撮影時の適切なエチケットを、よく認識していない可能性があります. (和訳:遠藤由明)
