Photography as Therapy According to Martin Parr

2018-01-02

British documentary photographer and color photography pioneer Martin Parr opened his own foundation in Bristol earlier this year, and with this short interview, he recollects his life and works with photography throughout the years.

Parr is known for his projects that explore modern life and social classes in England, sometimes the wealth of the Western world through satirical, anthropological and intimate approaches.

"The fundamental thing I'm exploring constantly is the difference between the mythology of the place and the reality of it... Remember I make serious photographs disguised as entertainment. That's part of my mantra. I make the pictures acceptable in order to find the audience but deep down there is actually a lot going on that's not sharply written in your face. If you want to read it you can read it."
