The Last Resort by Martin Parr
The Last Resort by Martin Parr
8 of 14 people found the following review helpful
Leisure is no laughing matter, as photographer Martin Parr proves in this terrific book on visitors of Brighton. Their splendid desolation shines through in every shot: the older couple waiting in a restaurant, the annoyed waitress in an icebar and most haunting, the toddler embracing a fruit machine in a casino full of bored women. Unsparing as it is, Parr's eye on humanity is not without feeling and brings to mind the work of William Eggleston.
