A complete and fascinating review of Parr's work,
This review is from: Martin Parr (Hardcover)
Unlike his many other books which concentrate on specific stories, this latest tome published so beautifully by Phaidon (as only they seem to know how) provides an opportunity to examine the man and his work in more detail, and across his whole career.
There are many who do not like Parr's style because at first glance it is invasive and uncomfortable, but it is precisely that which makes it so compelling. As an observer of modern life (especially British) he is without parallel, and this book will have much to offer everyone interested in photography and social documentary.
