OUGD405 Research (Studio Brief Two)

I started my research by looking into the artist Martin Parr, an artist who I looked at a little in College.

I particularly enjoy his collection above, which is a collection of British summer holidays. I think the photos really capture what a British summer holiday is like, as summer holidays in Britain are quite dull compared to going abroad - this is emphasized in the second photograph as the weather looks quite grim and dull. The first image is quite bright however, but I feel like it is still slightly mocking British holiday makers as the woman is wearing tan goggles, which she probably won't be needing as the sun isn't that strong in Britain.
