Martin Parr is a British Photographer. Known extensively for most of his photographic projects which were some pictorial representations of various critical aspects of modern life mostly cornering on the suburban life of England. Right from his teenage, Martin always wanted to be a photographer, hugely gaining inspiration from his grandfather who was an amateur photographer at that time.
During his early days as a photographer, after studying photography at Manchester Polytechnic, Martin was recognized for his early black and white works. It was only in 1984 he shifted to color photography. Since then there was no looking back for Martin, he eventually became a full time member of Magnum Photos in 1994.
