About Martin Parr

Martin Parr is a leading figure in British and world photography, and recognised as a brilliant satirist of contemporary life.  His recent books include the ‘Boring Postcards’ series (pub. Phaidon 1999 & 2000; the English Boring Postcards features a small selection of Hinde postcards), ‘Collected Works’ (pub. Phaidon alongside touring retrospective, opening at Barbican Art Gallery Jan 2002), ‘Think of England’ (pub. Phaidon 2000) and ‘Autoportraits’ (pub. Dewi Lewis, 2000).  Parr is a member of Magnum Photos.

Parr was the first person to take an interest in Hinde’s contribution to British photography.  His research and efforts led directly to the Irish Museum of Modern Art Dublin exhibition. In his introduction to the book, he explains the history of Butlin’s and tells the story of his discovery of the work from a personal perspective.
