Parking Spaces

Martin Parr

Between 2002 and 2007, Martin Parr photographed ‘the last parking space’ available in 41 countries – somewhere you could have parked your car, had you been there at the time. Using a compact camera, and driven by wanting to express “the individual frustration of finding somewhere to park, but on a global level”, this is the latest body of work in Martin’s methodical personal address to the issues of globalisation – the desire for a precious parking space being a banal unifier of the middle classes the world over.
Countries featured in Parking Spaces are Argentina, Australia, Austria, Brazil, Canada, Chile, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Egypt, France, Georgia, Germany, India, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Lebanon, Luxembourg, Mexico, Morocco, the Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Russia, Singapore, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sri Lanka, Sweden, Switzerland, Syria, Thailand, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, USA and Uruguay.
Parr’s concept for the book Parking Spaces is to present it in the manner of a wedding album – white and terribly precious, as befits the value of the last parking space. Featuring 63 photographs, it is published by Chris Boot in a boxed limited edition of 1000 copies each with a signed and numbered card.
