Sightseeing.

Photographs by Mikiya Takimoto.
Sun Chiapang (Little More), Tokyo, In Japanese and, 2007. In Japan. Unpaged, 11x8¼".

Taking a worldwide view of tourism and the creation of media through travel, Sightseeing is a fascinating meditation on and about sightseeing. With this work, Japanese photographer Mikiya Takimoto takes a worldwide view of tourism and the creation of media through travel, photographing families posing in front of Mount Rushmore, the Great Pyramids reflected in a hotel window and a safari caravan in Africa. While the book is an inarguably cohesive body of work, Takimoto takes several innovative approaches to photographing her subjects. The work seen as a whole comes off as a voyeuristic vision of international tourism, not wholly unlike a global extension of Disneyland.
