Martin Parr (born 1952) is a British documentary photographer and photojournalist. His photographic projects take a critical look at modern society, specifically consumerism, foreign travel and tourism, motoring, family and relationships, and food.
Parr is known for his lurid, and sometimes shocking, use of colour in photography. His satirical, witty approach to documentary photography leaves the viewer not sure whether to laugh or cry. His photos are often taken using macro lenses and ring flash as well as high-saturation colour film.
