Sprite of a Photograph from both Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2 on Game Boy Advance.

Photographs are stamp-like items that are exclusive to the Game Boy Advance remakes of Donkey Kong Country and Donkey Kong Country 2. In both games, they can be collected by the Kongs and stored in a Scrapbook. They only appear in the main modes and are represented by small blue Camera[1][2] collectibles.

In Donkey Kong Country, they can be acquired by defeating certain enemy species with a Hand Slap or by finding them in hidden locations throughout the levels, as well as by completing challenges at Funky's Fishing and Candy's Dance Studio. Once collected, a photograph will appear somewhere in the scrapbook and will not be available to collect again. There are a total of 52 photographs in the game.

In Donkey Kong Country 2, most photographs do not appear until the Kongs talk to Wrinkly Kong at Kong Kollege. Once they do so, particular enemies in the game will display a camera icon floating above them, which signifies that defeating them will award the Kongs with a photograph representing that enemy. Likewise, Wrinkly Kong offers tips on how to find these photographs, which can be bought from her with Banana Coins and viewed in the Wrinkly's Help section on the menu. Other photographs are given by Funky Kong as reward for completing his challenges at Funky's Flights II. For each page the Kongs manage to fill with photographs in its entirety, they will be awarded with a Hero Coin by Wrinkly Kong. When thirty nine photographs are covered in the Scrapbook, Wrinkly herself rewards the characters with the 40th and final Photograph.
