Martin Parr has Signed inside across his Self Portrait
This is a good opportunity to see Martin's works as the material here is gleaned from several different books but presented in a larger format.
Collected in this portfolio are provocative colour images from a British photographer who has become one of the most successful of his generation. Martin Parr has best expressed himself through books (Home and Abroad, Think of England, The Last Resort) in which he uses a subjective documentary approach that is often at odds with the more journalistic style of reportage. His focus on the themes of mass tourism, mass consumption, mass marketing and global homogenization shows us an environmentally destroyed world in which the major saving grace is a gritty, very British sense of humour.
