Yesterday in Conceptual Strategies we FINALLY discussed an artist I have never heard of or seen his work. It was actually pretty exciting.

Anyways, Martin Parr is refreshingly satirical in his work, and though he does capture the essence of some pretty big sociopolitical issues, the humor makes his images easily digestible.

To learn more about his work there are quite a few books out about/by him.

This book by Sandra Philips of Martin’s work gives insight to his beginnings and career.

PS. Phaidon has produced several books on Martin, check it out on Amazon.
