Parr's images captures the constantly changing theater of sandy seasides, from surfers and sunbathers to picnickers and newspaper readers. Tropical prints frame images shot in Parr's journalistic style, creating a nostalgic aesthetic that recalls a timeworn photo album. -Surface Magazine
A series of often hilarious beach tableaux--from grotesque sunbathers to bizarre shade contraptions and socks and sandals--Parr delivers a gentle mockery of humankind and their concepts of leisure. A colour-saturated collection, it charts four decades of interactions between people and the seashore across the world; from Italy to India to Australia -The Sydney Morning Herald
Parr has photographed beach culture for decades, and this beach-bag size collection captures quirky national behaviors around the globe. -The New York Times Book Review
