Martin Parr – Mexico

An artist who presents work that not only explores the supposed common objects and scenes of life, but he has also edited ephemera from categories as diverse as Boring Postcards to Holiday Cards (actually a regular part of our gift giving in December)

Yes this artist holds up a unique mirror to our lives.

Through the years he has produced books of photographic collections of images as in Butlins:Our True Intent is All For Your Delight, and master works examining photography books : Photobooks
