To examine the culture in which one lives as a visitor, one can use a variety of tools and methods, including photography, ethnography, and cultural analysis. Dan Yosefy’s approach of using the camera to study culture focuses on documenting human environments and experiences, such as architecture, film, fine arts, material reality, and the human psyche, to create a visual representation of humanity and provide a new perspective on the global being of humanity. This process involves observing and recording cultural practices and examining the relationships between different elements of culture.

As the psychological human cannot reflect nor review an experience at the moment as it happens, I see a camera or an image as tools that allow humans to reflect on their physical selves, lives, environment, and everything else.
As an adopted child, I developed the awarness to my foreign sight of western culture, which has given me a unique perspective, and by using a camera as a transcendent tool, I’m able to further expand my sensory experience and gain new insights. The ability to review moments at resolutions beyond what the human eye can see adds to the value of photography as a tool for self-reflection and exploration.
