Martin Parr. Martin Parr’s unmistakable eye for the quirks of ordinary life has made him a distinctive voice in visual culture for more than 30 years.

Martin Parr

Known for his use of garish colours and esoteric composition, he has studied cultural peculiarities around the world from Japan to America, Europe, and his home country of Britain. The themes of leisure, consumption and communication have occupied him for much of his career, all of which are explored with a penetrating irony. As photographer, filmmaker and collector, Parr has defined a generation. Parr was born in Epsom, Surrey, UK. When he was a boy, his budding interest in photography was encouraged by his grandfather George Parr, himself a keen amateur photographer. Parr has published over 100 books of his own work and edited another 30.

Parr’s major exhibition at the National Portrait Gallery opened in March 2019. Eric Bouvet. Paolo Pellegrin. Paolo Pellegrin was born in 1964 in Rome.

Between 1991 and 2001 Pellegrin was represented by Agence VU in Paris. In 2001 he became a Magnum Photos nominee and a full member in 2005. He was a contract photographer for Newsweek for ten years. Pellegrin is a winner of many awards, including ten World Press Photo awards and numerous Photographer of the Year awards, a Leica Medal of Excellence, an Olivier Rebbot Award, the Hansel-Meith Preis, and the Robert Capa Gold Medal Award.

He studied art at the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, and musical writing at the National Conservatory of Music in Paris. Over the years his photographic work has developed an approach of the medium that is not strictly documentary, nor purely conceptual or pictorialist, but which is informed by all of the above, re-questioning the balance of these elements with each new series he produces.

Trent Parke. Philippe Lopparelli. Zootopie Pendant plus de vingt ans, j’ai visité les zoos de France et d’Europe.

Ce travail en noir et blanc a donné lieux à la série Garde à Vue. Dans ce travail j’explorais une vision de l’animal, comme forme mouvante et insaisissable, maintenu dans sa cage à la disposition du regard du public. Pour Zootopie mon centre d’intérêt s’est déplacé de l’animal, vers le zoo en tant qu’architecture et bâtiment fonctionnel de gestion et de préservation des espèces menacées. Dans cette série en couleur, je ne suis plus du côté du public, mais plutôt du côté de l’animal. Réalisé avec le soutien de la direction régionale des affaires culturelles de Picardie (aide individuelle à la création – 2012)

Lars Tunbjörk

Swedish. Born in 1956 in Boras in Sweden. He passed away in 2015. Whether creating an acid portrait of Sweden, representing the nightmarish world of business offices, tapping into the desolate uniformity of petrified, petit-bourgeois neighbourhoods, examining the state of marginalised peoples in a nation praised for its system of social protection, or exploring the strangeness of a town on the cusp of the Arctic Circle, Lars Tunbjörk has totally forgotten his black and white beginnings. All his energy is now devoted to the exploration of colour, which he approaches in the style of 1970’s American photographers. Samuel Bollendorf. Pierre Faure. Sarah Caron.
