During his long career as a photographer, Martin Parr has always photographed on beaches, particularly in the UK. He has often used the beach as a laboratory to experiment with new cameras and techniques. In the early 1980s, his seminal project New Brighton, documented the run down seaside resort outside Liverpool in medium format colour which marked a shift in Parr's career and the adoption of his signature aesthetic. This limited edition presents Parr's more recent experiments with a telephoto lens. The use of the telephoto lens opened up new ways of seeing, and he has been able to present his subject matter from new and exciting perspectives. Allowing for wider and aerial views these photographs present the beaches which Parr photographs on a larger scale than his previous work while maintaining his subtle social commentary and use of bold, saturated colour.
