Photographing Tourists by Alan Powdrill

Who knew that photos of tourists taking pictures would be so interesting? Alan Powdrill's subjects are totally unaware that they part of his series, “Shooting Tourists,” as they are too busy documenting their own experiences. Check out all of their different postures and expressions. The look on some of their faces is truly priceless.

“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 mark on their memory hard drive,” says Powdrill. “This was followed by trips to London, Lanzarote, Madrid & Paris, stalking tourists doing what they best.”
