Martin Parr: World Tour presents an exhibition of signature photographs by celebrated photographer Martin Parr. Parr has compiled images from various locales throughout the world, including Paris, Moscow, Marrakesh, and Dubai. Gatherings at horse races, art fairs, concerts, and ski slopes provide Parr with extraordinary opportunities for his observations. Parr is a formally sophisticated, humorous, and astute documentary photographer.
Parr’s essential tropes, including a cacophony of colors and a keen appreciation of the absurd, are on view in these photographs. The daylight flash, the dressing up and partying, the coincidental matching of patterns and colors in unlikely places, all commingle in this body of colorful and witty work. In a world limited by pandemic and economic concerns, these photographs are all the more revealing and poignant.
