On holiday with Martin Parr

If you have ever wanted to go on holiday with Martin Parr, the celebrated English photographer, now is your chance. This weekend the School of Life is offering a two-day break on the Isle of Wight in the company of the sardonic snapper. Parr has described the Isle of Wight as a “living theme park, like stepping back into an England of 20 or 30 years ago.”

Staying in Parr’s favourite seaside hotel, you get to join him for visits to the Brighstone holiday centre, the Needles, Ventnor beach and other “landmarks of the Isle of Wight tourism scene.” According to the press release, you will get a chance to discuss his photography as well as his collections of souvenirs and postcards, and “train your eye to see the ugliness in beauty and the horror in leisure.”
