Talk & Book Signing

Martin Parr’s collections of photography books and postcards are world-renowned. Unbeknownst to many, he is also an obsessive collector of photographic and themed objects. Parr will discuss his luscious new two-volume set, Parrworld: Objects and Postcards (Aperture, 2008—I don’t think we need to credit Boot here). While Objects is the first publication to document his twenty-five-plus years of such collecting, Postcards is the “last word” on an extraordinary collection of over twenty thousand cards.
