Descripción Promenade Press, Wallasey, Merseyside, 1986. Paperback. Estado de conservación: Very Good & Sound. 1st edition. Oblong 4to. Paperback. Faded slightly to spine and back cover's top edge o/w good and sound, clean and bright copy. SIGNED by Martin Parr to 1st page. Martin Parr is one of the world's most iconic photographers, his ability to capture the essence of Britishness unparallelled within contemporary image-making. The series that first propelled him to success in his mid-80s documentary series The Last Resort was an intimate freeze-frame of New Brighton, a time capsule of the holidays working class families during Thatcher's reign. Shot in colour during a time where traditional black and white imagery was the exclusive medium of 'proper' photography (a trend first dismantled by Americans like Stephen Shore and William Eggleston before Parr brought it across the Atlantic), The Last Resort signified a shift in the way photography was understood in the UK.
