Summary/Abstract: The article presents an attempt at interpretation of a hybrid publication White. Notes from Africa by a famous music journalist and photographer Marcin Kydryński. The author; paying particular attention to the photographic aspect of the publication (which contains not only numerous reprints of photographs; but also various comments on the art of photography); discusses the original – because of its subjectivity; doubt and self-criticism – approach to the far-away continent. The analyzed “notes” are interpreted as an attempt at looking at the Other and the Self as the Other in the context of intercultural communication.
