This exclusive book was first published on the occasion of the exhibition ‘Photobooks: Martin Parr’s Best Books of the Decade’, curated by Martin Parr at the National Photographic Archive, Dublin, Ireland – in the framework of PhotoIreland Festival 2011. The publication includes Martin Parr’s comments on each book, together with illustrations and ‘Author’s notes’. These are mostly unpublished texts by the photographers, publishers and curators of the works – personal statements on the process and raison d’être of each book. This book was on show at the PARRBOOKS exhibition during the Fotobook Kassel 2015.
About the Artist
Martin Parr (b. 1952) is a British documentary photographer, photojournalist and photobook collector. He is known for his photographic projects that take an intimate, satirical and anthropological look at aspects of modern life, in particular documenting the social classes of England, and more broadly the wealth of the Western world.
About the Publisher
Founded in 2009, PhotoIreland was conceived as an organisation that would stimulate a dialogue around Photography in Ireland by developing a varied array of initiatives and events with a strong participative approach.
