US Tourists from the 80’s

Roger Minick is an American photographer who has captured the essence of the 1980s American tourist in his Sightseer Series.

“Humor is integral to the series because the sightseeing experience, particularly in the United States, is a crazy, frenzied activity. The easy accessibility of the sites and the bigness of the landscapes contribute to a larger-than-life experience” Roger Minick

Some of the more ridiculous styles of the time bring some humor to the photos!
