Abstract

To travel the 6 miles (10 km) around the bay, from the historic alleys and squares of Mallorca’s urbane and sophisticated capital Palma to the notorious beach resort of Magaluf, with its reputation as an outpost of “Binge Britain,” is to traverse a great cultural and class divide. These photographs record our ongoing interest in the contrasting tourist cultures and the different socio-spatial logics that these two places represent for vacationers. One of our aims is to question and in some ways to visually transgress the boundaries that separate them and the different kinds of tourist gaze that they promote.
