This Martin Parr (. 952) retrospective is rich in the wit and colour for which Parr's work is well known, yet simultaneously offers the first ever serious assessment of the career of this major contemporary photographer. Parr combines an urge to document with an attitude of incisive bemusement by social behaviour. Val Williams, distinguished writer and curator, considers Parr's later work - also his most famous - within the context of his full career.

Val Williams, distinguished writer and curator, considers Parr's later work - also his most famous - within the context of his full career. In so doing, she shows how Parr's subtle and striking photographs have highlighted political and social change over the last 30 years. This book offers the overview that many have eagerly anticipated.

The acute observation, wit and colour of Martin Parr's work since the mid-1980s has established him as one of the most successful and popular of contemporary photographers and a leading member of the prestigious Magnum agency. But a great deal of original and surprising earlier material has remained relatively unknown. This retrospective is the first serious assessment of his entire career to date. With over 600 images, including selections from all his best-known projects, it reveals hitherto little-known work and many previously unpublished photographs. Unlimited access to Parr's archives and extensive interviews with the photographer have allowed writer and curator Val Wilhams to chart Parr's life and career, giving new insights into his influences and attitudes and reassessing his importance as an artist.

A broad and representative selection of Parr's work. The text has a higher than usual fact to waffle ratio for the field.
In the last chapter of this fascinating book author Val Williams says of Parr 'He is a cunning photographer, sidling his way into situations where he shouldn't always be, looking as ordinary as the people he photographs'. How true and this could well explain how he manages to take such interesting photos of people and situations.
This thick, chunky book gives a good cross selection of Parr's work, from the superbly observed black and whites of working class life in the seventies and eighties to the capturing, in color, of the middle classes in the nineties. I think Parr works best when he photographs the British and is able to see and capture social situations that most of us miss. There are twelve color shots of street scenes in Boring, Oregon, (chosen, naturally, because of the town's name and Parr's three books, called Boring Postcards though these have no connection with the place) and they are just like any other photographers vernacular work, if Boring had been in England Parr would have found some class differences to make the photos say plenty.
Author Williams writes in depth about Martin Parr and his work and with several hundred photos this book is an excellent visual biography of one of the best British documentary photographers working today. BTW, the back of the book includes a few pages of Martin's collection of ephemera, knick-knackery that has taken his fancy, a tin of Heinz Barbie pasta shapes, a set of Russian coasters showing trucks or a set of Spice Girls chip packets and more, I have a similar collection of things that have caught my eye over the years, is this a trait of creative folk?
This is only my fourth time reading this collection cover to cover; I cant get enough of it. Williams' insightful essays broken up with the pertenant images following makes for a throughly enjoyable read, covering Parr from the early days to current. Williams pulls from lots of outside resources, making this a very well rounded look at his life time of work. If there is one Parr book to own, it is this beautiful Phaidon collection, cant reccommend highly enough!
Having recently discovered Martin Parr I wamted a book that would give me a nice round-up of his work. This book didn't disappoint. The pictures start in his youth and go past 2000. The text is well written and free of the usual art speak, giving the reader a guide to Parr's thought process and how his idea's have evolved. The photos are well reproduced and representative of his changing style.A good book for the Martin Parr fan, or the merely curious.
