5.0 out of 5 stars 1 of the 2 early Parr B&W offerings. Highly coveted work. 23 Sept. 2005
By En Trance - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This and Bad Weather were Martin Parr's two first major early 80's books, and both were done in a medium he no longer uses: Black & White. Parr's unrelenting use of color beginning in the mid 80's would spark a turn in his work where he would never look back. In this book, (full title: A Fair Day, Photographs from the West of Ireland) we get a documentary side of Parr which would carry on to The Cost of Living, capturing common people of their country, engaging in public events. You get fairs, ballroom dances, country homes, abandoned cars, and just everyday outings that the people of rural Ireland encountered. Two of my favorite captures are the blurry scene of people stuffing the entrance to the Mayflower Ballroom, and two apparently intoxicated bar patrons sitting beside a flutist and fiddler.

This one and his earlier book, Bad Weather, are commanding some very high prices on the secondary market. If you can't get your hands on them, we can only hope he will consider reprinting them.
