Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Boring Postcards präsentiert die Highlights aus Martin Parrs legendärer Postkartensammlung "langweiliger", nichts sagender Orte Großbritanniens. Mit Witz und Ironie nähert sich Parr dem schlechten Geschmack, dem Essen, den Touristen, dem Einkaufsverhalten und den Schwächen der Briten. Der Band, der nun als broschierte Ausgabe erscheint, ist ein subtiler Kommentar in Bildern zu britischer Architektur, gesellschaftlichem Leben und Identität.

Synopsis:

This collection of postcards shows subjects such as bad taste, food, tourists, shopping, and social life in 1950s-1970s Britain.

Synopsis:

160 boring postcards of the British Isles, reproduced as they have been found, actual size, from the collection of the great iconoclast of British photography, Martin Parr. This is a serious art book, a depiction of a tragic Britain with tragic taste, and a photographic entertainment which a large audience will enjoy.
