On Tour – Magaluf

On Tour I - Magaluf (working title) is an on going project which focuses on 18-30’s holiday destinations.

For years young British workers have sought the carefree atmosphere of the Med to work in a job where the rigid social boundaries of their home country are fiercely rejected.

They are runaways from the constraints, disappointing weather and economic gloom of the UK, yet despite this they are repeatedly drawn to places where the British influence is uncompromisingly apparent, creating a melting pot of British taste and foreign heat - these young people believe they have found paradise; they are paid to talk, drink and have a good time, and they do so, with great success.

These photographs were made at the end of the season in 2013; few tourists linger and the remaining workers reflect on the long, chaotic season from which they are about to emerge.
