In 2011 Magnum photographer Martin Parr, as a special project for FotoFreo, set out to photograph three Western Australian port cities, Fremantle, Port Hedland and Broome. Each town was a unique setting for a photographer famed for his images of British seaside culture in the publication Last Resort. Using his unmistakably intimate and satirical style, Parr went about photographing Australian clichés, full of saturated colours and flash photography. The resulting photographs, published here for the first time, are an invaluable collection from this world-renowned British photographer.
In Martin’s own words, “No Worries. This is a phrase that seems to encapsulate the rather delightful, laid back approach that the West Australians adopt. I quickly noticed that nearly everyone I met in Broome and Port Hedland in particular used this phrase, and once observed the title was a done deal.”
