Martin Parr: Chronicler of our age?

Introduction

The first time I looked at images of Martin Parr I couldn’t understand why this photographer was so revered. The images did not seem to really have any meaning, the content was akin to that of a photos taken on a holiday at a British seaside resort, the saturated colours made them look even more amateurish.   2,022 more words

The finest work of Tony Ray-Jones (1941- 1972) was a record of the English at leisure.
