Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
After Parr's two major Black and White books, A Fair Day, and Bad Weather, came two of his best color works, The Last Resort, and what I consider to be his best work, The Cost of Living. While the Last Resort captured Britains vacationing in their own country, The Cost of Living seemed to capture everything else in their lives. From political parties and tea parties, to shopping and tourism, all are shot documentary style, with everyone seemingly unaware that Parr is there.

A colorful look at British social life, capturing true expressions and events in the lives of the middle class. Another out of print Parr book, so grab when you see it!
