PROGRAM

SPEAKERS

Martin Parr

Martin Parr is one of the legendary names of the contemporary photography. He has been capturing satirical slices of day-to-day life for over 40 years. He is so productive that it is hard to present his work in only a few sentences. Martin documents the society with sense of humor and irony, but one could always find deeper meaning to his work.

It would be oversimplification to say he is a photographer. He is author os many books and movies. He is a curator, a teacher, author of many articles and publications.

Since 1994 he is a member of the Magnum agency. In the period 2014-2017 he is the president of the agency.

The Martin Parr Foundation, founded in 2014, opened premises in his hometown of Bristol in 2017. It houses his own archive, his collection of British and Irish photography by other photographers, and a gallery.
Martin Parr is one of those names that everyone in the field of documentary and art photography knows. Over 10 movies are dedicated to his life and his work.

During his talk in INSPIRATION PHOTO CONFERERENCE he will tell us more about his photography career and what inspires him.

He is already working on his second book which he hopes to complete by the end of 2019.

During his talk in INSPIRATION PHOTO CONFERERENCE he will take you on a fast-track journey over the past 5 years of his photographic learning: things he got right, things he definitely got wrong and needed to correct immediately, and some things he would perhaps have done differently. He will also take you through his approach to long-term projects which has lead to his first book deal.  The lessons learnt, tools used, successes and failures he has had will help you move forward and fast track your success in your photographic journey as well.
