Never before has travelling the globe been so easy for so many people. Within the next five years, tourism will become the largest industry in the world. British photographer Martin Parr has documented the process in this brilliant work of satire. Travelling to the most popular locations, which have already been obliterated by mass-market tourism, and also to the newly emergent hot-spots, Parr shows today's world travelers as bemused victims of consumerism, trapped by a ludicrous craving for a culture that is homogenized by their very presence. A fascinating and foreboding look at the consumer culture of today.
