Introductory essay (3,000 words) - writer to be confirmed; 100 colour photographs
Martin Parr is arguably Britain's key contemporary photographer, with a unique point of view and unmistakable signature, with a critical and popular following in the worlds of art, fashion and journalism. He has been widely published and exhibited internationally (he is very well known across Europe and about to become a major figure in the USA). Books of his photographs include Bad Weather, The Cost of Living (1991), Small World (1995) and The Last Resort - Photographs of New Brighton (1997). His first Boring Postcards book for Phaidon (1999) was a massive success, both in England and around the world.
"An accessible and funny study into the soul-searching debate about the very nature of Englishness."-Pride of Britain "Parr provides the definitive picture of English egg-and-chintz."-British Journal of Photography "An affectionately satirical study of the English identity... The effect is both reassuring and disturbing."-Daily Telegraph "100 colour images... that transform the kitsch, the cliched and the common into the sublime."-Evening Standard "A wryly ambivalent amble through the commonplaces of his home country."-New York Times "Zeroing in on the abundant cliches of his green and pleasant land and pushing them as far as they'll go."-The Wall Street Journal "Uses supersaturated colors and a satirical eye to paint a portrait of his motherland that is both comical and despairing."-American Photo
