Martin Parr for Nowness

Martin Parr in a video for NOWNESS

In a special edition of Photographers in Focus, commissioned for the launch of Magnum Learn, the site Nowness published a video by filmmaker Joppe Rog to get a closer look at Parr’s thoughts and process.

Martin Parr has spent over 50 years documenting the foibles of British life in all their quirky and occasionally ludicrous glory. His work appears in books and exhibitions all over the world, and in 2017 he opened the Martin Parr Foundation in Bristol, which exhibits and supports photography focused on the British Isles.
