Inge Daniels on amateur photographic practices in contemporary Japan

In this episode of AnthroTalking, Inge Daniels talks about how the stereotype of Japanese people taking lots of photos can be said to carry some truth with it. Instead of associating photos with memories, to Japanese people, it is more about the future and looking forward, she argues.
