I’m best known for my book Practical Ethnography: A Guide to Doing Ethnography in the Private Sector. This book has become a staple for design research and innovation courses, as well as a go-to handbook for applied ethnographers. I am delighted to share some of the fantastic photos readers have shared with me, from around the world.
