The Link's Awakening Photographs are twelve pictures that can be found in the DX remake of Link's Awakening. They are part of an optional sidequest in which the Photographer takes pictures of Link's journey. Each photo must be obtained by performing certain actions, and some can only be taken during specific events. After being taken, they are placed in a photo album, entitled The Travels of Link, [1], which can be found in the Camera Shop.

List of photographs

[6] She says that the cliff can be their secret place. [7] The Photographer takes this picture and leave, saying that he will go develop the photo.
