Martin Parr (LCC) [venue: Eldon 0.20]
01 February 2012
Martin Parr was born in Epsom, Surrey in 1952. When he was a boy, his budding interest in the medium of photography was encouraged by his grandfather George Parr, himself a keen amateur photographer.
Martin Parr studied photography at Manchester Polytechnic from 1970 to 1973.
Since that time, Martin Parr has worked on numerous photographic projects. He has developed an international reputation for his innovative imagery, his oblique approach to social documentary and his input to photographic culture within the UK and abroad.
In 1994 he became a full member of Magnum Photographic Corporation.
