About the Author

Martin Parr CBE (born 23 May 1952) is a British documentary photographer, photojournalist and photobook collector. He is known for his photographic projects that take an intimate, satirical and anthropological look at aspects of modern life, in particular documenting the social classes of England, and more broadly the wealth of the Western world. His major projects have been The Last Resort (1983-1985), The Cost of Living (1987-1989), Small World (1987-1994) and Common Sense (1995-1999), all of which have been published by Dewi Lewis. Since 1994, Parr has been a member of Magnum Photos. He has had around 40 solo photobooks published, and has featured in around 80 exhibitions worldwide - including the international touring exhibition ParrWorld, and a retrospective at the Barbican Arts Centre, London. The Martin Parr Foundation, founded in 2014, opened premises in his hometown of Bristol in 2017. It houses his own archive, his collection of British and Irish photography by other photographers, and a gallery.
