Summary

The 'taking' of photographs is one of the most characteristic and symbolic moments in tourism. Since its invention over 150 years ago, tourists have taken photographs of everything - cities, buildings, restaurants, other people and themselves. In doing so, they create visual narratives of their experiences and of the places, peoples and objects that collectively and individually comprise the tourist gaze. But more than resulting in a two-dimensional image, photography is acknowledged as having an important role in the determining of places and spaces, the construction and re-construction of identities, and the invention and re-invention of histories.Bringing together an international and interdisciplinary team of contributors, this book examines the relationships between photography and tourism and tourists. It asks key questions such as: why do tourists take photos of certain things and not of others? Why do tourists take photos at all? How do photos build places, how do they change and shape lives?
