A documentary photographer and photojournalist Parr is also a book collector.

Parr is famous for his photo projects that takes an intimate look at aspects of modern life from a satirical and anthropological prospective, documenting the social classes of England and more broadly the wealth of the western world.

Major projects: Rural Communities (1975-82); ‘The Last resort’ (1983-85); ‘The Cost of living’ (1987-89); ‘Small World’ (1987-94); ‘Common Sense’ (1995-1999).

Parr has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1994 and had published over 40 books and exhibited at over 80 exhibitions.
