Briton Martin Parr has long been recognised as one of the key photographers of his generation, with his images capturing an enduring middle-class lifestyle that is enjoyed by many of his countrymen, making his shots familiar to some and an enigma to others. Since 1994, he has been a member of the Magnum Photo Agency, and continues to produce images that employ vivid colours and humour in equal measure.
Horacio Fernández talks about Parr as part of a series of discussions on photographers entitle Iconos. Maestros de la fotografía en imégenes.
