Description

Leisure, in all its manifest forms, has occupied Martin Parr for his entire career. But from funfairs to food to flower shows, nowhere is the pursuit of pleasure more nakedly apparent than on the beach. “The beach is always going to be an integral part of what I do – it just goes on and on,” says Parr.

This contact sheet contains photographs of New Brighton, England 1983-1985.

Martin Parr joined Magnum Photos in 1994.
