Format: Hardcover
These photos capture exactly what it feels like to be a tourist at many places around the world. These aren't beautiful scenery or architectural portraits, but photos of real people acting and feeling like tourists in touristy places. Sometimes funny and ironic, sometimes depressing. The Great Pyramids with people posing in front of them, surrounded by local sellers of miniature trinkets. The leaning Tower of Pisa, with lots of tourists all doing the same schtick. I don't recommend this if you are looking for nice photos of world attractions. But I recommend it very highly if you are looking for photos of real people doing real things, acting themselves. Or if you want photos of what it's really like to be a tourist. Martin Parr has a couple other books out there - The Last Resort is also an excellent collection of real people photos of New Brighton.

One of the best works by Martin Parr, with his ironic view of tourism and the people around the world. It's easy to feel the funny of his photos and his particulary point of view, in a great book.
