Martin Parr

Martin grew up in many places including London, Surrey and Yorkshire but he now lives in Bristol. In many of the places he grew up he lived in the suburbs which helped to develop his photographic style, which is subjective and he tries to show tradition aspects of life

Many of his photos look like a snapshot style, for example he takes photos of people on the beach and of food

During the thatcher era he took most of his work at beaches and tried to show things like class in his work

Parr was considered very british in style as he tried to show how things really are
