 "La Gioia" october - december 2014

Born in 1952 in England. Lives and works in Epsom.

Martin Parr holds an important place among documentary photographers. An inveterate traveller, his works offer a perspective on today’s world through images filled with irreverence and sarcasm. Leisure, consumption and communication are some of the subject matters that he has been investigating during his career. “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 (…) He examines national characteristics and international phenomena to find out how valid they are as symbols that will help future generations to understand our cultural peculiarities,” explains professor and art curator Thomas Weski.
