'Spots not to be missed in the lifetime of a tourist', 2016
An image of a waterfall on a postcard launches the beginning of a journey towards the pictured sight. An exotic quest during which the photographer allows herself to be guided by various tourists in America. From a distance, she observes the tourists in their habitat, but she also tries to gain insight into the marketing strategies of commercial tourism which has known a continuous growth.
