English Beach

I was born in Africa. My summers were spent on a tropical beach. Hours were spent in the water with a snorkle and fins. The English do it differently. Martin Parr and his acerbic observational skills guided me through a week with my children and friends on an English beach.

The English are at their most eccentric at the seaside... This is my very personal view of the “English Beach.”
