Stern Portfolio #36 - Martin Parr
Parr, Martin Collected in this portfolio are provocative color images from a British photographer who has become 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 humor. A collection of provocative color images from a British photographer who has become the most successful of his generation. Martin Parr's work is the subject of an exhibition traveling through Europe in 2004. Parr's use of a documentary approach to show us an environmentally destroyed world is amply illustrated in books such as Home and Abroad, Think of England, and The Last Resort.
