Books Info:

The Last Resort free pdf A new edition of a modern classic of photography. Martin Parr is Europe's premier contemporary photographer, and "The Last Resort" is the book that is considered to have launched his career. Taken at the height of the Thatcher years, it depicts the "great British seaside" in all its garish glory. Described by some as cruel and voyeuristic and by others as a stunning satire on the state of Britain, early editions are now much sought after by collectors worldwide. Includes a new essay by Gerry Badger, photographer, architect, curator, and critic.
