ROUTE 1, ICELANd

An insight to my photo-documentary Route 1, Iceland.

I intend to create a photo-story that documents Route 1, Iceland. The purpose of the project is to analyse how tourism photography inspires people to visit a place, and how this continues to drive the increase of the tourism industry. Route 1, the national road of Iceland, connects all of the tourist destinations across the island. Although many tourists don’t venture far past the capital region, this is part of my research to question why people travel to Iceland, and only concentrate their adventures on a small area of it."
