Book Description

25 Oct 2010
Martin Parr was born in Epsom, Surrey, UK, in 1952. When he was a boy, his budding interest in the medium of photography was encouraged by his grandfather George Parr, himself a keen amateur photographer. Parr studied photography at Manchester Polytechnic, from 1970 to 1973. Since that time, Martin Parr has worked on numerous photographic projects. He has developed an international reputation for his innovative imagery, his oblique approach to social documentary, and his input to photographic culture within the UK and abroad. In 1994 he became a full member of Magnum Photographic Corporation. In recent years, he has developed an interest in filmmaking, and has started to use his photography within different conventions, such as fashion and advertising. In 2002 the Barbican Art Gallery and the National Media Museum initiated a large retrospective of Parrs work. This show toured Europe for the next 5 years. Parr was appointed Professor of Photography in 2004 at The University of Wales Newport campus. He was Guest Artistic Director for Rencontres D'Arles in 2004. In 2006 he was awarded the Erich Salomon Prize and the resulting Assorted Cocktail show opened at Photokina. In 2008 he was guest curator at the New York Photo Festival, curating the New Typologies exhibition. At PhotoEspana, 2008, he won the Baume et Mercier award in recognition of his professional career and contributions to contemporary photography.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great read from a great photographer 14 May 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed reading this and how much of value I took away from the reading. I have heard Martin Parr talk about his career on more than one occasion. I was surprised by how much detail I learnt about that career and how illuminating that was.

Martin Parr is not only a gifted photographer but has always been very clever about constructing projects and making sense of the world through his images. This is probably the best way to understand the extraordinary intelligence behind the images.
