In this thesis, I have designed, implemented and evaluated different user interfaces that enable users to get a deeper understanding of life in different cultures. Specifically, I have focused on user interfaces that enable and inspire the contribution and consumption of visual media that highlights the subtleties of everyday life. This thesis was completed via the researcher-as-designer approach where I explored and tackled the different design challenges in the intersection of cultural understanding and photo-sharing that this thesis lies within.
