Item description for Small World by Martin Parr & Geoff Dyer...

Small World is a biting and very funny satire in which Martin Parr observes global tourism and the tourist’s search for authentic cultures that are themselves destroyed in that search.

Martin Parr has worked on numerous photographic projects and developed an international reputation for his innovative imagery, his oblique approach to social documentary, and his input to photographic culture within the United Kingdom and abroad. In 2002 a major retrospective exhibition was initiated by The Barbican in London and is touring internationally to 2008.

Reviews - What do customers think about Small World?

Excellent real life photos  Jun 30, 2000
These photos capture exactly what it feels like to be a tourist at many places around the world. These aren't beautiful scenery or architectural portraits, but photos of real people acting and feeling like tourists in touristy places. Sometimes funny and ironic, sometimes depressing. The Great Pyramids with people posing in front of them, surrounded by local sellers of miniature trinkets. The leaning Tower of Pisa, with lots of tourists all doing the same schtick. I don't recommend this if you are looking for nice photos of world attractions. But I recommend it very highly if you are looking for photos of real people doing real things, acting themselves. Or if you want photos of what it's really like to be a tourist. Martin Parr has a couple other books out there - The Last Resort is also an excellent collection of real people photos of New Brighton.
