'A splendidly deadpan observer' (Times Literary Supplement), Martin Parr has revitalized contemporary documentary photography with his own brand of robustness and variety. His photographs are above all a visual extravaganza of acute observation, wit, and colour. A pioneer of colour photography and an insightful commentator on the commercial culture of today as well as domestic and social life, he has repositioned contemporary documentary photography. A member of Magnum since 1994, Parr has published over twenty books and been widely exhibited around the globe. He is arguably Britains key contemporary photographer, with an unmistakable style and an international following in the worlds of art, fashion and journalism.Review:
