Photographing tourists photographing

For his latest project “Shooting Tourists,” professional photographer Alan Powdrill turns the camera on picture taking (and video recording) tourists. He explains:

The idea started with a visit to Rome, an amazing place definitely not short of holiday makers, all after that elusive shot that will make it’s [sic] mark on thier [sic] memory hard drive.

This was followed by trips to London, Lanzarote, Madrid & Paris, stalking tourists doing what they best.

So meta! It reminds me in a way of tourists taking photos of other tourists mimicking the same pose at the the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
