M A R T I N P A R R : All Things Parr
11 December, 2010 - 29 January, 2011
ROSEGALLERY is pleased to present All Things Parr, an exhibition of work by and about British photographer, Martin Parr. Large-scale photographic prints from the series, Luxury, unique photo sculptures, and newly produced limited edition photo-objects will be on display.
For more than a decade Martin Parr has made a point of visiting local street and studio photographers in diverse cities around the globe to have his portrait taken in a variety of often humorous local styles. The resulting autoportraits, featuring gaudy props, standardized backdrops and overly saturated color, showcase the artist as he takes an ironic look at himself and the increasingly homogenized world we inhabit.
