Nice one Oisin. Funny enough, Parr has recently published a book of photos taken on South American beaches, "Playas". You've probably seen them already, but here's one of my favourites from that series: http://tiny.cc/3yo1X

Yeah I'd seen that book somewhere before, it has a fantastically kitsch layout, see http://lomokev.com/?p=24 where there's a bit of a write up about Parr's rationale further down the post.

I thought of him as I was scouring the beach for photos. Didn't manage to catch anything as glitzy and colourful as his stuff though!

Here's a great photo-essay (video) on Magnum in Motion previewing the book, and highkighting the printing process http://inmotion.magnumphotos.com/essay/playas
