"I'm creating fiction out of reality" - Martin Parr
Martin Parr is firmly established as one of the world's most famous and successful documentary photographers. His instantly recognisable work has examined everything from global consumerism and mass tourism to the lifestyles of the super-rich. Brightly-lit and colour-saturated, it highlights the quirks and foibles of individuals and societies with images that are often wryly humorous and sometimes acerbic.
The German photographic curator Thomas Weski has said:
Martin Parr is a chronicler of our age... Leisure, consumption and communication are the concepts that this British photographer has been researching for several decades now on his worldwide travels... Parr enables us to see things that have seemed familiar to us in a completely new way.
We are delighted to present the KNOKKE series (2002) by Martin Parr. The portfolio includes 15 inkjet prints, 29.5 x 40 cm each, from a Limited Edition of 30 + 10 APs. Signed & numbered in pencil on colophon page by Martin Parr.
