MARTIN PARR // LUXURY- NOVEMBER 2013

Martin Parr was born in Epsom, Surrey. His interest in photography began as a child under the guidance of his grandfather George Parr, himself an accomplished amateur photographer. His images focus on the lifestyle of the average Englishman, reflecting the social and moral decline of the working class under Margaret Thatcher. He became internationally renowned for his indirect approach to social documentary and his innovative imagery, and in 1994 became a full member of Magnum Photos, far from the many controversies caused by his provocative photographic style. A cocktail party around Martin Parr was planned on 19 November 2013 at Artazat, for the release of his latest book Luxe (Textuel editions).
