Luxury by Martin Parr( Book )
8 editions published in 2009 in 3 languages and held by 149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"With photography, I like to create fiction out of reality. I try and do this by taking society's natural prejudice and giving it a twist, says British photographer Martin Parr, who is most known for his satirical images of the ostentatiously wealthy. Luxury is Parr's epitaph to the age of conspicuous consumption, with candid images of the fabulously wealthy on the international party circuit: champagne-fuelled lunches, horse races, Moscow's Millionaire Fair, the Dubai Art Fair and the Beijing Motor Show, to name a few locales. Both biting and affectionate, this series, which comprises 35 works created between 2003 and 2009, is part of the touring exhibition Parrworld. Documenting the trends, tastes and social mores of the bourgeoisie--diamond encrusted jewelry, pure breed puppies, racecars, endless canapes and empty champagne bottles--Parr succeeds in capturing the cliche-laden tedium of excess, while making the whole scene seem a little more human. Parr's mobile perspective and viewpoint is that of a housefly; critic Neal Brown writes, characterizing the photographer's style as buzzing around people's heads, landing on the edges of their plates and food displays, and viewing everything as a fantastically enlarged, over-colored world upon which to masticate regurgitated vomit, and enjoyably shit. Exquisitely designed, this volume--with a padded, gilt-foiled mock-leather cover--is the perfect souvenir of the era before the bubble burst. Also featured is an introduction by leading fashion designer and Martin Parr fan, Paul Smith."--Publisher's statement
The non-conformists : Martin Parr by Martin Parr( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Non-Conformists' features Martin Parr's first major body of work from the mid-1970s, published here for the first time in book form. A wonderful and charming surprise for Parr enthusiasts and fans of traditional reportage, this body of black-and-white imagery predates the cutting colour work that earned him his fame in the 1980s. In 1975, fresh out of art school, Martin Parr found poor footing in the London photography scene, so he moved to the picturesque Yorkshire Pennine mill town of Hebden Bridge. Over a period of five years, he documented the town in photographs, showing in particular the aspects of traditional life that were beginning to decline. Susie Parr, whom he had met in Manchester, joined him in documenting a year in the life of a small Methodist chapel, together with its farming community. In words and pictures, the Parrs vividly and affectionately document cobbled streets, flat-capped mill workers, hardy gamekeepers, henpecked husbands, and jovial shop owners
