Martin Parr
"Martin Parr's photographs can make us feel very uncomfortable. He has made a comedy about the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the places we go; scrutinized the very way we live our lives." - Val Williams
These are so powerful pictures. Parr has such a great sense of disgusting. The only critic: the noise of the blowing gum is totally unnecessary; weird editing.
having followed Martins work for the past 20 years I greatly admire his endeavours. If we look at his comment about commercialism and its impact on economy we only have to look at what is happening today to see how true his wods are. Are obession with wealth and consumerism has led us to this piont. Well done Martin.
This is an absolutely wonderful idea and Martin does a terrific job of telling us about what he photographs and why he does it. Please do more of these wth other photographers.
Wonderfull work and commentary.
These are nothing but silly snapshots. There has been little to no thought put towards composition. How on earth you became a Magnum photographer is beyond me.
Am not quite sure if the last person really understands your work....but for all those who do keep it up Mr Parr
Parr has done a fantastic job! Keep up the good work to all who love and enjoy the art of photography.
I find work like this very inspirational as I am just starting out in photography: Martin Parr has quickly become one of my favourite photographers. This essay gave me an insight into the workings of his mind and his thoughts behind his own pictures. Very interesting. Keep it up.
I enjoyed this multimedia essay, especially because of the interesting commentary by Martin Parr. It's great to hear the photographer himself talk about his motivations. The work itself I already knew and find fascinating and important, however I think the single pictures as presented in this multimedia essay change a little too quickly to really appreciate them. But since this essay is entitled "Agenda" I assume the idea is to give an introduction and overview and not to substitute looking at a book or visiting an exhibition.
I really dislike the gimmicky and overtly-trying-to-be-funny in a "pointing-finger-at-something" manner of Martin Parr photos. His work is boring, unfunny and I still don't understand how he became a magnum photographer. Sabastio Salgado, Eugene Richards and James Nachtwey left Magnum and Martin Parr became a member, that says something about the future of magnum.
Fantastic! What I can only say is --- Fantastic Work! I love your work.
