Part of Martin Parr’s career-spanning fascination with life on the beach – from the blustery shores of the United Kingdom to tropical sands of sunnier climes – this slideshow of Rio de Janeiro’s famous coasts captures the city’s vibrant beach culture through Parr’s playful eye. Fruit, music, dancing, tans and tiny swimwear all make an appearance in this snapshot of typical goings-on on Ipanema and Copacabana beaches.
