Do we take too many photos? Does it change our experience of life?


I run a podcast called Who cares? What's the point? In it, I interview people from around the world who are doing interesting things in psychology. In one recent episode, I spoke with Alex Barasch from the Stern Business School at New York University about how we may often hear the message that we should stop taking so many photos and just be in the moment and enjoy our experiences without trying to record everything. But is this true? Does photography - especially using our smartphones - get in the way of our experience of life? You can listen to the podcast and read the transcript of my interview with Alex here. I hope you enjoy it.
