American Tourist

AMERICAN TOURIST
By Jenn Ackerman and Tim Gruber

Calling upon childhood memories and family snapshots, American Tourist is a Polaroid documentation of the people and places we have come across in our travels. Just as the memories are being created, the photos are being developed. This form of instant gratification chronicles our many journeys as a tourist across the vast American landscape.
