Item description for Martin Parr (Portfolio (Teneues Numbered)) by Parr Martin...
Collected in this portfolio are provocative color images from a British photographer who has become the most successful of his generation. Martin Parr has best expressed himself through books (Home and Abroad, Think of England, The Last Resort) in which he uses a subjective documentary approach that is often at odds with the more journalistic style of reportage. His focus on the themes of mass tourism, mass consumption, mass marketing, and global homogenization shows us an environmentally destroyed world in which the major saving grace is a gritty, very British sense of humor.

Reviews - What do customers think about Martin Parr (Portfolio (Teneues Numbered))?
Sarcastic and Witty Apr 12, 2008
If you don't get British humor, and more specifically, sarcasm, then skip this book. If you are interested in something both fresh and visually compelling, Parr is your guy. It's not always easy to get a hold of his books, so get them when you see them.
