Win tickets to ‘The Great British Seaside’ Photography Exhibition at the National Maritime Museum

Win tickets to ‘The Great British Seaside’ Photography Exhibition at the National Maritime Museum

From the abandoned piers to the dazzling arcades, celebrate six decades of the British seaside through the lenses of Britain’s four most popular photographers: Tony Ray-Jones, David Hurn,  Simon Roberts and Martin Parr.

Examine the ambiguities and absurdities of seaside life through this major exhibition of over 100 photographs. All four photographers share a love of the seaside which reveals itself in playful and often profound representations of the British by the sea while still bringing their own distinctive take on the seaside experience. Ray-Jones gives us a social anthropologist’s view, Hurn’s is a nostalgic love letter to the beach, Parr provides an often-satirical examination of class and cliché while Roberts explores our collective relationship with, and impact on, the coast.

The Great British Seaside includes images from the archival collections of each of the photographers, new films, and new work taken around the Essex seaside by Martin Parr.

Open until 30 September 2018. Use code OLDERWISER18 to get 20% off online.
