Martin Parr is a chronicler of our age. In the face of the constantly growing flood of images released by the media, his photographs offer us the opportunity to see the world from his unique perspective. Leisure, consumption and communication are the concepts that this British photographer has been researching for several decades now on his worldwide travels, examining national characteristics and international phenomena to find out how valid they are as symbols that will help future generations to understand our cultural peculiarities. In his photos, Parr juxtaposes specific images with universal ones without resolving the contradictions. Individual characteristics are accepted and eccentricities are treasured.
