Martin Parr: The Last Resort

Martin Parr is widely acknowledged for his photographic projects that highlight and gently satirise people and their cultures. This image is part of the project The Last Resort: Photographs of New Brighton (1986). This was Parr’s first project to show a move towards his now distinct personal style: bright colours and vivid images, that captured the holidaymakers of Brighton and set alight his passion for observing society. The series has since become a modern classic.
