MARTIN PARR | Souvenir

Martin Parr is a contemporary British photographer known for his intimate and satirical portrayal of modern life. At a time of increasing wealth disparity he casts an unnerving eye on consumerism and social class.

 

He was born in 1952, studied at Manchester Polytechnic and since 1994 has been a member of Magnum Photos. He is one of the most widely published contemporary photographers and is acknowledged as an authority in the history of photobook publishing.

 

The German curator Thomas Weski has said:

 

“Martin Parr is a chronicler of our age. In the face of the constantly growing flood of images released by the media, his photographs offer us the opportunity to see the world from his unique perspective. At first glance, his photographs seem exaggerated or even grotesque. The motifs he chooses are strange, the colours are garish and the perspectives are unusual. Parr’s term for the overwhelming power of published images is ‘propaganda’. He counters this propaganda with his own chosen weapons: criticism, seduction and humour. As a result, his photographs are original and entertaining, accessible and understandable. But at the same time they show us in a penetrating way how we live, how we present ourselves to others, and what we value.”

“The fundamental thing I’m exploring constantly is the difference between the mythology of the place and the reality of it.”
