Martin Parr represented by Rocket Gallery, London

The Last Resort is the first – and most iconic – series of colour photographs by Martin Parr. The body of work coincided with the emergence of a new school of British colour documentary photography. Made in the northern seaside town of New Brighton near Liverpool, these photographs comprise a satirical, raw, yet loving description of the British people at leisure in the height of the Thatcher era.
