About the series – written by Michael Werner, editor if Two Way Lens and The Truth of Beauty:
“Oliver Weber's new and evolving series Social Life at Beach is a wonderful documentary about the touristic life on the Canary Islands of Spain. Every year hundreds of thousands of tourists, mostly from Germany, England and meanwhile also from Russia, take over the Canary Islands and turn them into the perfect object for observation on "social life at the beach.
The result are captivating photographs that show this bizarre, surreal, sometimes melancholic and always fascinating world of tourism with all its side effects and cliches.
Oliver Weber’s Social Life at Beach will be exhibited as large scale prints in May/June 2013 at Galerie Lichtkreuzung in Munich, Germany."
