DescriptionThis stunning limited edition of 50 copies includes a print numbered and signed by Martin Parr. The image is entitled Gourock Lido, 2004 , and features the Gourock Outdoor Pool, which is a salt water public lido in Gourock, Renfrewshire, Scotland. It is the oldest heated swimming pool in Scotland. Ian Galt, the swimmer in the print of Gorouck lido says about the Martin Parr's photograph: "It must have been a particularly wild night - there'd obviously just been a rainstorm. The colours work beautifully - that grey against that aquamarine - and the photograph captures something of our Scottish eccentricity: the storm clouds and the rain, and the eccentric local who decided to go swimming when no one else would." For over 25 years Martin Parr has been taking photographs in Scotland. From the streets of Glasgow, to an island agricultural show on the Orkneys, Parr has built huge archive of photographs. This body of work is Parr's largest archive that has remained unpublished and weaves together some of the expected visual iconography of Scotland such as highland games and stunning landscapes , but all given the Parr twist that makes the expected look so unfamiliar.
