Publisher's Description
'Life at the sea's edge is like an ending for a road movie where everyone gathers together. Life dances on, year after year, under sun and cloud, holidaymakers come and go, people change, the sea does not. The imagination begins where the land ends.' In 'The Holiday Pictures', Paddy Summerfield does not offer the glamour of the continental resorts; this is the British seaside, where sunlight can give way to rainy pavements, and overcast skies. And here we all are: children and parents, babies and teenagers, people of all ages and from all over, sharing the magic of the coast. We see them in families, in couples and crowds, or isolated and alone under sunlit skies; we see them bored or lost in thought, dozing or daydreaming, caught up in play or watching sky and sea. They cross the sands, they wander along promenades and piers, and endlessly photograph, making holiday memories. With 'The Holiday Pictures', Summerfield tells us our own story, a primal and universal story of the generations at the sea s edge, looking inwardly at their own feelings, and looking out to the horizons and skies. And the photo sequences imply other narratives, as if someone has walked into the next frame, as if the wave that curls in one picture is seen breaking in the next, where children splash and play.
