Signed by Martin Parr to half title page. The Liverpool suburb of New Brighton is no longer the fashionable holiday resort it used to be, and visitors who come today carry with them images of relaxation and recreation which are often at startling odds with their surroundings. This contrast between the lived-out dream and physical reality is central to The Last Resort, Martin Parr’s third book of photographs. Parr presents the paradoxes of New Brighton in tableaux of utmost detail and refulgent flesh. The questions he raises are subtle and not easily answered; but they make The Last Resort a collection which, as well as engaging the eye and exciting the emotions, also provokes thought.

Condition: blue boards a little worn with light fading to fore-edge of front panel, otherwise very good.
