Martin Parr

The work of Martin Parr bridges the divide between art and documentary photography. His studies of the idiosyncrasies of mass culture and consumerism around the world, as well as his innovative imagery and prolific output, have placed him firmly at the forefront of contemporary art. Recent publications include Luxury (2008) and Life Is a Beach (2012). A member of the international photo agency Magnum, Parr is an avid collector of books and a world authority on the photobook.
