Portfolio No. 6
Paris, a portfolio composed of photographies from Martin Parr. 350 copies. 150 signed.
For forty-five years Martin Parr has been taking photographs of scenes of ordinary life that are able to take us by surprise, capturing the inherent vulnerability we all share.
He now invites us to follow him around Paris.
The Maison Européenne de la Photographie gave him carte blanche for this serie, and for two years he has focused on Parisians, photographing the Champs-Élysées, tourists, the 14 July celebrations, fashion shows, the Le Bourget air show, Paris Plage, museums, art fairs, the annual agricultural show, etc.
This portfolio illustrates Martin Parr’s Paris: the French capital seen through the lens of a quintessentially English photographer.
Portfolio delivered in its complete box set: Wombat N°6.
