As amazing as it is that the world has become so easy to travel, it is sad to think how superficial these experiences have become for many stereotypical sightseers; F*cking Tourists by Jolipunk, a French photographer, captures this sentiment. The photo series revolves around locals who have no patience for "the tourists who are always looking for folkloric photographs," as Whitezine puts it.

Although the gestures captured in F*cking Tourists by Jolipunk are crude, they are also telling. In a single gesture, these locals are able to convey a variety of messages to the ubiquitous traveller from move along to get over yourself and more. Whether captured with a straight face, an apologetic one or even a bashful expression, the gesture will hopefully encourage tourists to have broader experiences when traveling.
