The Great British Seaside: Photography from the 1960s to the present

From 23 March the National Maritime Museum will host a major photography exhibition celebrating the nation’s love affair with the seaside, featuring more than 100 photographs by Martin Parr, Tony Ray-Jones, David Hurn and Simon Roberts, as well as newly commissioned work by Martin Parr. 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 seaside. 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.
