Discussion on Humanist Photography at Voz’Gallery (Paris)

The largest retrospective of Martin Parr’s workever created in South America has just been opened at the Museum of Image and Sound in São Paolo. With the title Parrtificial, the exhibition is divided into seven parts, and for each of them the staging plays on the individual theme’s own atmosphere. When we call to mind Parr’s work the classic subjects reappear; so it’s with feet in the sand and from a beach-towel that we can look at the images from beach resorts around the world made by the English photographer.

After having passed through an artificial boxwood maze in which the the photographs of tourist places are shown, where there is also an English lounge in which the photographer’s view of his own country and his compatriots is displayed, we find a section dedicated to the books published by Martin Parr throughout his career. It’s possible to view them behind glass but also to leaf through them virtually, on the screens placed around the walls.
