Thoughts about travel photography involving people

Jump to last reply

I'm trying to be a good web citizen and do as we are supposed to do - keep threads on topic. As a previous thread called "A sociological question: Are the people of Vietnam unhappy?"
http://www.fodors.com/community/asia/a-sociological-question-are-the-people-of-vietnam-unhappy.cfm
has changed into a lively discussion about travel photography, I'm starting this new thread here.

Below are the last 2 posts from the previous thread:

Again, speaking of cultures where a premium is placed on accommodating others, a more active way of signaling displeasure than mere nervous laughter would be to ask to take pictures of the photographer, the assumption being that doing so would show just how offensive it is. Only works if the initial photographer is, in fact, offended, though....

kja,
What's all this about "displeasure" and "nervous laughter"? What do you imagine is going on? Many people love getting photographed, and I've never found any place where they love it more than Asia.
