Martin Parr, fotografia i col·leccionisme / Souvenir. Martin Parr, Photography and Collecting


15€ Buy

Martin Parr’s photographic work provides an exceptional insight into the rich and surprising relationships between photography and collecting within the framework of the tourist experience: the privileged backdrop for modern life.

The catalogue seeks to establish a dialogue between these two realities – photography and collecting – in order to reveal their affinities and contradictions and thus enable the viewer to decipher the motives, media and objectives of both these types of artistic intervention.
