Martin Parr with 'Jubilee Street Party, Elland, Yorkshire'
Limited collector's edition with a silver gelatin print.
The long-reigning godfather of British documentary photography, Martin Parr, has gained critical and popular recognition as a pioneer of colour photography. An insightful commentator on the idiosyncrasies of British public and domestic life, Parr often provokes debate with his candid, unflinching viewpoint. A member of Magnum Photos since 1984, Parr has published over twenty books and become one of Britain's best-loved photographers. Described as 'monumental' by The Evening Standard, this is the first retrospective publication covering Parr's entire career to date.
The publication also includes a 12 x 16 inch c-type print of Parr's Jubilee Street Party, Elland, Yorkshire (1977), from his series Bad Weather which surveys people in Britain and Ireland going about their lives in bad weather.
