Publisher's Description

The Tourist contains all the hallmarks of Kourtney Roy’s recognizable and appealing style: self-portraiture, a filmic approach, and a characteristic vivid color palette. But it also shows a tension between the witty and the sinister, the conventional and the unorthodox, the glamour and the sleaze. Roy is a virtuoso of context creation, and her exceptional crafting of the point where we depart our existential world and enter the intentional one she provides for us is nothing short of admirable. Roy creates a playful visual metaphor for a world we believe we know, yet through her clever use of juxtaposition we quickly realize that it is not quite the world it seems to be.
