Martin Parr has been photographing beach life over many decades, documenting all aspects of this tradition including close ups of sun bathers, swimming dips and picnics in the UK as well as in countries as far apart as China, Argentina and Thailand.

This exhibition demonstrates Parr’s engagement with a cherished subject matter, where all absurdities and quirky national behaviours seamlessly fuse together.
