Martin Parr's early work, captured in black and white instead of with vibrant color films, will be on view at The Photographers' Gallery in London in the exhibition The Ceremony of Life. The exhibition will be on view from 3 March until 23 April, 2017.
The Ceremony of Life is an upcoming exhibition of rarely seen black and white prints from world-renowned British photographer, Martin Parr, best known for his acerbic, bold, colour portraits charting the customs and peculiarities of British culture with wry wit and trademark unflinching gaze.
These early works – taken in the 1970s and early 1980s – reveal a gentler, less critical lens, unearthing a young photographer with superlative observational skills, passionate about capturing the unsung rituals of everyday life.
