Since the time of Cartier-Bresson, documentary photographers have been hunting images on the streets, and crossing paths with tourists and the places they congregate. It’s inevitable that in the process of capturing the life of a city there is an intersection between the photographer and these observers of culture and places. The world of travellers.
’You are a Tourist’ references this interaction and is an interpretation by four Calgary based photographers (Cary Schatz, JC Yepes, Philip David and Brandynn LP) of what this interaction means to them. Whether through their own travel or at home, they capture the clash of society and its interlopers.
