“Oh, we do like to be be­side the sea­side!”

This England - - 'Cornucopia’ -


na­tion’s love of the sea­side will be cel­e­brated in the Na­tional Mar­itime Mu­seum’s spe­cial ex­hi­bi­tion for 2018, which will show­case beach pho­tog­ra­phy by some of Bri­tain’s best pho­tog­ra­phers. The Great Bri­tish Sea­side: pho­tog­ra­phy from the 1960s to the present will run from March to Septem­ber, and will fea­ture more than 100 works by pho­tog­ra­phers in­clud­ing: Martin Parr, Tony Ray-jones, David Hurn and Si­mon Roberts.

The ex­hi­bi­tion will ex­plore our chang­ing re­la­tion­ship with the sea­side over the last six decades and will hold up a crit­i­cal and af­fec­tion­ate mirror to a much-loved and quintessen­tially Bri­tish ex­pe­ri­ence, cap­tured by pho­tog­ra­phers who share a mu­tual love of the coast. The Great Bri­tish Sea­side will in­clude im­ages from the archival col­lec­tions of each of the pho­tog­ra­phers, news film as well as some never be­fore seen im­ages.
