a new definition for "scrapbooker"

Ethnography (Greek ἔθνος ethnos = people and γράφειν graphein = writing) is a genre of writing that uses fieldwork to provide a descriptive study of human societies.

The genre has both formal and historical connections to travel writing and colonial office reports.
