Martin Parr by Val Williams( Book )
5 editions published in 2014 in English and French and held by 84 libraries worldwide
The acute observation, wit and colour of Martin Parr's work since the mid-1980s has established him as one of the most successful and popular contemporary photographers and a leading member of the prestigious Magnum agency. The only comprehensive monograph of Martin Parr's entire career to date, this second edition has been updated with completely new photographs and three new chapters assessing his most recent photographic work, as well as his expansion into the fields of curating, collecting and editing. Beginning with Martin Parr's early black and white work, and moving through the development into his signature colour-saturated photographs, this newly updated monograph provides a complete overview of the acclaimed Magnum photographer's career to date. By placing the everyday at centre stage, Parr is best known for his sharp and witty visual chronicling of British (and later, global) idiosyncrasies. Parr's photographs have received popular acclaim, provoked controversy, and been applauded for their critical observations of the world we have built and inhabit. 0Val Williams charts Parr's development as a photographer, from his early inspirations and outings with his grandfather, through his student days in Manchester and experimentation with documentary and art photography, to his sharply critical observations of the effects on global consumerism on our daily lives
