KEELEY TRAVEL is a travel agency that doesn’t sell holidays, run by architectural historian Tom Keeley. It is interested in the echo between people and their surroundings, and what the gaze of the tourist can show us about the everyday through architectures, landscapes, histories and geographies.
KEELEY TRAVEL works in relation to one destination at a time, undertaking research where the process and outputs are determined by the site-specifics of the destination itself. The travel agency produces quarterly brochures that act a a newsletter in relation to this work.
