Quintessentially English himself, Parr's great achievement as a photographer is his ability to transform the obvious into the surprising, reinventing cliches of Englishness as provocative revelations. Parr's work has already added to the visual vocabulary of England; this book, his first specifically on the subject of England, stretches it further. Simultaneously affectionate and brutally direct, all the photographs are shot with a ring flash camera (more usually used for medical photographs), which has been his medium of choice for the last four years.An accessible and funny study into the soul-searching debate about the very nature of Englishness. Parr provides the definitive picture of English egg-and-chintz. An affectionately satirical study of the English identity... The effect is both reassuring and disturbing.
That transform the kitsch, the clichéd and the common into the sublime. A wryly ambivalent amble through the commonplaces of his home country. Zeroing in on the abundant clichés of his green and pleasant land and pushing them as far as they'll go.
Uses supersaturated colors and a satirical eye to paint a portrait of his motherland that is both comical and despairing. Please look at my other items including rare modern and contemporary art and design pieces. This item is in the category "Books, Comics & Magazines\Books".
