MOVE is Eamonn Verberne's latest investigation into the particularities of what tourists do when they go on holiday. Developing previous explorations of the phenomena of vacations, MOVE questions the need to validate a holiday by capturing it within an image, recording events like experience in a resume, almost as confirmation.
Yet these images are often tarnished by the plenitude of people who gravitate toward capturing them, seemingly unaware of one another. Holiday snaps of favourite scenes, and indeed memories, are frequently marked by the inclusion of tourists standing in the frame, buses parked in the way or aeroplane vapour trails in the sky.
MOVE examines the vista of the careless tourist and their pursuit of the quintessential image, questioning the very notion of the perfect holiday and our desire to believe in its possibility - despite what the picture indicates.
