ANNA FOX: RESORT 2 -- BUTLIN'S BOGNOR REGIS. Schilt Publishing, Amsterdam, 2015. 104 pp. with 58 ills. (55 col.). 31 x 25 cm. ISBN 9789053308400 In English.
Publisher's description: For two years British photographer Anna Fox documented holiday culture at the iconic Butlin's resort in the seaside town of Bognor Regis, West Sussex. This new book, Resort 2, is the second part of the Resort project. Resort 1, published in the fall of 2013 (Worldwide 163721), looked at "Family Breaks" at this renowned holiday camp, providing a unique insight into contemporary British leisure culture. Resort 2 observes a very different kind of holiday, the themed adult breaks, taking place about once every six weeks inside this very British setting. Butlin's, famed for its family holidays since its creation in the mid-1930's, needed to rework its branding from the 1970's onwards. Cheap package holidays started to draw families away from this popular resort and several of the camps closed down. Having attracted tens of millions of holidaymakers since its creation in 1936, the popularity of Butlin's was at stake and after the rebranding of the "Family Breaks" came a new invention -- the "Adult only Themed Weekends". Steeped in a carnival atmosphere, these raucous weekends bring out a range of fantastic characters from groups of imitation pop icons such as Amy Winehouse and Elvis to gangs of male fairies.
