This is an ongoing photography project exploring the effects of mass tourism on the environment and local culture.
Living in a very touristic place and making a big part of my living from tourism, I have been interested in turning my lens away from the touristic attraction and towards the admirer, the user of the admired subject, the touristic landmark.
In this project I am especially interested in how the casual visitor has transformed into a mass tourist. I am not interested so much in the individual user but more in the touristic mass as it occupies the space and transforms it into a semi-permanent stage unfit for purpose.
