The inspiration for this project was drawn from Martin Parr’s earlier work, in photographing the liveliness of large crowds during summer holidays. Parr’s particular fascination in capturing ordinary people having a good time, laid the foundation for the composition of several photos taken. Moreover, the claustrophobic and chaotic nature of the scenery is heavily demonstrated throughout this book, and like in his work in ‘The Last Resort’.
To counter the humorous observations photographed in this book it also pays homage to the nostalgic feeling felt in the celebratory events such as weddings and parties. This book presents a captivating and fascinating insight into a raw way of looking at the world, that is both anonymous and real.
