The beach scenes in this new series aren't so very different from the kind of images Parr has shot on the strands of Benidorm, beside Lake Garda, or on Uruguay’s Punta del Este. Yet the world-renowned beauty of the Italian coast still comes through. Tourist parties still look awkwardly daft, as do tanned and bloated bodies lying on the sand; yet it’s hard not to look at these pastel coloured boats bobbing of the coast of Capri (below), and find yourself charmed by the simple prettiness of the region. Proof, perhaps, of the uncomplicated aesthetic charm of Southern Italy, even when put through Parr’s lens.
