In this volume, which accompanies a massive exhibition scheduled for July 2012 at the High Museum of Art of Atlanta, Martin Parr explores his fascination with concepts such as leisure, consumption, communication, and how these themes play out in America.
Martin Parr was born in Britain in 1952. Parr's early works in the 1970s are solely black and white photography, but after 1980 he switched to color film and continued his focus in color photography. His inspiration for color photography originated from the American photo-documentarists. In 1994 Parr became a member of Magnum Photographic Corporation.
