“Life’s a Beach” in Norway

Perspektivet Museum draws upon a selection of Martin Parr's iconic beach-themed photographs in this exhibition

Martin Parr

In Life’s a Beach, one of Britain’s most beloved photographers takes us on a colour-saturated journey through a place loved by all, the seaside, with its general absurdities and local quirks. Martin Parr has been photographing this subject for many decades, documenting all aspects of the tradition, including close-ups of sunbathers, rambunctious swimmers caught mid-plunge, and the eternal sandy picnic underway.

This exhibition presents photos of beachgoers on far-flung shores, including in Argentina, Brazil, China, Spain, Italy, Latvia, Japan, the United States, Mexico, Thailand, and of course, the U.K.
