Ever had a holiday that wasn't what you hoped for? Bored Tourists explores the phenomenon of traveling to a foreign country with every intention of being inspired by it, only to be left feeling bemused, bored or half asleep. What began as a chance visit to Barcelona Cathedral led photographer Laurence Stephens to spend the next three summers exploring the cultural landscapes of Spain and Portugal. From stuffy museums to breath-taking skylines, with camera in hand, he went in search of the not-so-elusive bored tourist.
