Hi All,

A not to miss exhibition of works by MARTIN PARR.
Souvenir - A Photographic Journey

A member of Magnum Photographic Corporation.

Magnum Photos is an international photographic cooperative owned by its photographer-members, with offices in New York City, Paris, London and Tokyo.

According to co-founder Henri Cartier-Bresson, "Magnum is a community of thought, a shared human quality, a curiosity about what is going on in the world, a respect for what is going on and a desire to transcribe it visually."

Martin Parr is a chronicler of our age.

Martin Parr enables us to see things that have seemed familiar to us in a completely new way.

His photographs offer us the opportunity to see the world from his unique perspective.

The motifs he chooses are strange, the colors are garish and the perspectives are unusual.

As a result, his photographs are original and entertaining, accessible and understandable. But at the same time they show us in a penetrating way how we live, how we present ourselves to others, and what we value.

Leisure, consumption and communication are the concepts that this British photographer has been researching for several decades now on his worldwide travels.

Looking forward to seeing you.

Chris Walsh
