In my pointers for Assignment 5 one of the suggestions from my tutor was to look at the narrative work of Martin Parr particularly his work on Hebden Bridge and Brighton. I have read a little about this artist while looking at contemporary art and I have to say taking a peek again made me think. The images are quirky and seem a little to be everyday shots however on closer inspection one sees that they are also a little mocking. Having read the article suggested by my tutor http://www.telegraph.co.uk/culture/3615454/Martin-Parr-is-acclaimed-for-his-brash-colour-satured-images-of-the-lives-and-foibles-of-regular-folk.-As-he-prepares-to-curate-the-prestigious-Arles-photography-festival-he-talks-to-Martin-Gayford-about-the-ambiguity-that-lies-beneath-his-work-Ordinary-lives-extraordinary-photographs.html I have learned that Parr is mocking himself and his own in many ways. Some may think he is being patronising of british middle class and perhaps a little but there seems to be an affection within them also. His images appear to be snaps however the composition is evident for example in this shot of two ladies in a church which I have taken from the Telegraph website. Or Or this which I have taken from the BBC website. There is a lot of thought gone into the composition and he is making a statement with his images while merely snapping at what he sees. The next picture I will show here is an image which to me tells a story in a single image. To me it tells us of the type of people who are seen at this seaside village, the abundance of everything available to them, the polite way the lady is posed and the gentleman with his cap while contrasting with the rubbish around and how indifferent they seem to it them is making quite the statement. I also note how the lady is pointing in the background I keep looking around this image and every time see different things and learn more about the place. This style of photography the first time I saw it did not make such an impression I am currently in Thailand and while seeing many impressive landscapes and enjoying the Thai people and there friendly ways which are exotic to me there is one other thing which has caught my attention and that is tourists like myself here on holiday. This is a project I would like to purse the Selfie.
