BIG IN JAPAN: Photography against stereotypes
These photos were taken during my five weeks in Japan – as part of my research track in Osaka which unfortunately ended too early due to a health problem. A few are photos that should be seen in color and the others are better in black and white. I did not intend to make a photo collection until I came back to Europe. After I came back to Krakow and looked at these photos again, however, I realised that the world would never be the same to me and wanted to share the unforgettable five weeks with The Euroculturer.
Pictures do not need many words. I leave it to the audience to interpret what I really wanted to say with the photos.
