New Tourist is the first photography book produced by UMMMI., an artist who predominantly works with video. This series formed as UMMMI. suddenly found herself living in Australia through a personal relationship. The aim of these photographs was to capture her slow transition from being a stranger in new surroundings to becoming accustomed with Australian life. Australia provided intense feelings of happiness by being embraced into a new society. However the further into the real Australian culture she became the higher the hurdle felt to truly feel like an insider. With language as a barrier UMMMI. used her camera as proof of her existence. This book is about the journey after being tourist and her dealings with a new national identity.
