MARTIN PARR

Magnum Photos member (and past president) Martin Parr is widely celebrated for his satirical view on modern life, photographing subjects such as mass tourism and global consumerism. An avid photobook collector himself, he has published over 100 books and has hundreds of exhibitions around the world (too many to count), including at the Barbican Arts Centre and National Portrait Gallery in London.

He has won a raft of awards including the Sony World Photography Outstanding Contribution to Photography and the Royal Photographic Society’s Centenary Medal. He is Manchester Metropolitan University’s Honorary Doctor of Arts, has acted as artistic director for the New York Photo Festival and Les Rencontres d’Arles, and in 2017 opened the Martin Parr Foundation in his hometown of Bristol, UK.
