Martin Parr: Beach Therapy Limited Edition

British photographer Martin Parr is one of the best-known documentary photographers of his generation. He is author of more than 90 books and the editor of 30 others.

Parr’s work is in the collections of many major museums, including the Tate, Centre Pompidou, and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
During his long career as a photographer, Martin Parr has always photographed beaches, particularly in the UK. The beach is more than just a common subject for Parr; he has often used the beach as a laboratory to experiment with new cameras and techniques.

Beach Therapy is the first Italian solo exhibition based on the homonymous series by the British photographer. Organized by Spazio Damiani Gallery in Bologna, until March 1, 2019, twelve medium-format photographs was exhibited. Besides some of the best known British beaches, some Italian, Spanish and Argentine beaches are included among the subjects.

During the exhibition, a large monograph entitled Beach Therapy was published by Damiani.
The book will also be featured in a limited edition that will be published on February 2019 and that includes a color photograph produced in 90 copies signed and numbered by the artist and titled “St Ives, Cornwall, England, 2017”.
