This is a charming survey of the people of Britain and Ireland going about their lives in bad weather, a recognised national obsession. Many of the images were captured with an underwater camera and flashgun, as Martin Parr’s Leica was prone to getting water leakage. The book contains 56 images, shot across the UK and Ireland and texts by Peter Turner and BBC weatherman Michael Fish.
