“Beaches are one of the most fascinating places to observe people. The beach is a place where we relax and get rid of the obstacles. On the beaches, our true personalities come to the fore ”. – Martin Parr

Parr’s colorful close-ups of oiled sunbathers and sandy picnic moments bring together all the fascinating personalities from their own personal paradise into one eccentric whole.

In recent years, the production of the award-winning English master photographer has been eagerly awaited to be seen in Finland as well. Parr has also worked and photographed in Finland, and some time has passed since the previous exhibition in our country.

In addition, in the summer of the VB Photography Center will see the video installation “Elsewhereland” by documentary filmmaker Mika Mattila (b. 1974), which explores the ritual nature of global tourism and man’s ultimate longing somewhere else.
