About the Author

Martin Parr was born in Epsom, Surrey, UK, in 1952.

He studied photography at Manchester Polytechnic, from 1970 to

1973 and, since then, he has worked on numerous photographic projects.

He has developed an international reputation for his innovative imagery, his

oblique approach to social documentary, and his input to photographic

culture within the UK and abroad.

In 1994 he became a full member of Magnum Photographic Corporation.

In recent years, he has developed an interest in filmmaking, and has started

to use his photography within different conventions, such as fashion and

advertising.

Martin Parr was appointed Professor of Photography in 2004 at The

University of Wales Newport campus.

Martin Parr was Guest Artistic Director for Rencontres D'Arles in 2004.

In 2006 Martin Parr was awarded the Erich Salomon Prize and the resulting

Assorted Cocktail show opens at Photokina.

In 2008 Martin Parr was guest curator at New York Photo Festival, curating

the New Typologies exhibition.

Parrworld opened at Haus de Kunst, Mucich, in 2008. The show exhibited

Parrs own collection of objects, postcards, his personal photography

collection of both British and International artists, photo books and finally

his own photographs. The exhibition toured Europe for the following 2 years.

At PhotoEspana, 2008, Martin Parr wins the Baume et Mercier award in

recognition of his professional career and contributions to contemporary

photography.

Martin Parr curated the Brighton Photo Biennial that took place in October
