Don’t Be A Bored Tourist

British documentary photographer Laurence Stephens has a decidedly satirical eye, so it’s no surprise that his new book Bored Tourists exudes an  acerbic wit. Based on a photo series of the same title, the book takes a trenchant look at travelers who seem to be let down by their tourist experience.

Bored Tourists is the product of a summer-long trip throughout Spain and Portugal where Stephens noted a preponderance of unenthusiastic, apathetic, and just plain bored tourists. The images, while superficially lighthearted, present a jaundiced take on modern European mass tourism.

The book is published by East London indie press Hoxton Mini Press.
