Beach Resort Photographs Reveal Our True Feelings About the Average Summer Holiday

Mario Dotti photographed seaside and beach locations between 2010 and 2011, gathering them in his series called Vistamar. He was interested in exploring popular locations to find out how beach holidays would look like for middle class Italians. What do they do and desire? What are their habits when spending vacations at sea? He observed that people like to travel to tropical Edens without actually changing their daily routine too much.

He says “there is something reassuring and familiar in spending holidays on domestic shores, on crowded beaches, in highly urbanized city-like locations. It allows people to live the summer-holiday-dream without the need to change their habits. As if the real Eden is the one that most resembles our home.”
