Remi Chapeaublanc journeyed around the world to put together his stunning photo series 'Tourist.' Through this series, he takes a philosophical approach to what it means to be a tourist, including how one is defined by the term and finds an identity through it.
Comprised of 16 diptychs, Remi Chapeaublanc's 'Tourist' series shows two visions of his subjects. One is a dramatically direct portrait and the other centers on daily life. In each, the subject becomes the watcher and then the watched.
