Funny, quirky and colorful photography with a relatable subject making this book appeal to a wide audience. Part of a new, collectable, pocket-sized series of affordable and accessible photography books.

Ever had a holiday that wasn't what you hoped for? Bored Tourists explores the phenomenon of traveling to a foreign country with every intention of being inspired by it, only to be left feeling bemused, bored or half asleep. What began as a chance visit to Barcelona Cathedral led photographer Laurence Stephens to spend the next three summers exploring the cultural landscapes of Spain and Portugal. From stuffy museums to breath-taking skylines, with camera in hand, he went in search of the not-so-elusive bored tourist. 


Laurence Stephens is a British documentary photographer. He is inspired by color photographers of the 1980s, and uses flash and saturated colors to enhance the comedic quality of his images. Stephens has a degree in documentary photography and focuses his time on projects in the UK and abroad.
