Martin Parr is one of the most prolific image makers of our time. A notable photographer, Parr is also recognized internationally as a publisher curator, supporter of young photographers and for an almost obsessive collecting habit.
Parr often explores elements of tourism, consumerism, class and stereotypes in his work. Social groups, particularly the middle-classes are a recurrent theme for Parr; a demographic that he himself identifies with.
His style: richly saturated colors that seem exaggerated and an unflinching almost aggressive compositional structure.
As part of the Qatar-UK 2013 partnership, Martin Parr exhibits in Doha, classic projects of his, such as “Small World” (expressing his satirical look at global tourism), and “Luxury” (an insight to the world’s super rich).
