Great fun they will bring a smile to your face ...
on 27 August 2014
Martin Parr is a very recognisable photographer, I don't mean as a person but for the photos he produces. Gloriously vivid colours and close up to his subjects without them seeming to know he was there.
This book is packed with this sort of photo, photos of life on a beach in fact. If you go to a beach many of these images will be around you but you will probably not have noticed them.
Martin clearly has an eye for these little details and the nerve to take pictures of them, believe you me it does take some nerve to do it all the while at the risk of being chased off the beach, the police being called or simply punched and your camera tossed in to the sea.
Great fun they will bring a smile to your face and you will never be able to go to the beach again without looking for similar moments, leave it to Martin to risk the abuse and enjoy the book.
