Taking Pictures of People Taking Pictures

In a world of smart phones and digital photography we all have a high quality camera in our pockets and at our fingertips.  This results more than ever in a desire to document everything around us.  Whether it’s the food we eat or the places we go, photography is all around us everyday.

Taking Photos of People Taking Photos is an ongoing body of work looking at our relationship with photography.  When visiting iconic tourist hotspots why is it our first choice to capture a photograph of ourselves stood infront of that location or structure?  The notion seems to be that unless we have photographic proof of our experience then did it really happen?
