From Magnum: "Between 2006 and 2008 Martin Parr documented the differences in beach culture between Latin American countries whilst traveling with his wife Susie. Her text accompanies the photos in the book. The book is printed to look purposely cheap, with noticeable imperfections, somewhat like a book you'd find in a 99 cent store, complete with offset colors and gaudy clip-art style graphics."
