Martin Parr - Life's a Beach

$33.00

Following on the heels of Martin Parr’s limited-edition, album-style presentation of Life’s a Beach, released last season, Aperture (New York City) is delighted to introduce a new beach-bag-size version. Parr has been photographing beaches for many decades, documenting all aspects of them, including close-ups of sunbathers, rambunctious swimmers caught mid-plunge, and the eternal sandy picnic underway. His international career, in fact, could well be traced to the launch of The Last Resort, a 1986 book depicting the seaside resort of New Brighton, near Liverpool. What may be less known is that this obsession has led Parr to photograph beaches around the world. This book shows Parr at his best, startling us with moments of captured absurdity and immersing us in rituals and traditions associated with beach life the world over.

124 pages, 22 x 16 cm, hardcover, Aperture (New York City).
