Been There

The desire to travel is strong, but the places we visit are crowded. What do we get out of it, if not proof in pictures that we've been there? How tourists, in search of the best photos, become invaders. 


How tourists become invaders, hunting for the best pictures.
Weekend trips, city breaks, a detour into nature or once around the world. Barely a few days off, you’re already gone. Never before has the desire to travel been so widespread and visited places so overloaded. What do we get out of it, other than the picture proof that we have been there?
