Photo biography – an illustrated lecture by Martin Parr

Martin Parr discusses his long career as one of the most original and innovative photographers of our time. From the early days of taking black and white photographs of Ireland, notably A Fair Day (1984), Bad Weather (1982), the groundbreaking The Last Resort (1986) and up to his most recent work exploring globalisation and tourism. Martin’s unique perspective on the follies and vanities of our time has consistently enlighted, amused and even alarmed. A photograph by Martin Parr is instantly recognisable as his: in a world in which we are bombarded by the visual media, his image always engage and can never be ignored.
