Martin Parr “This is the world on vacation”

Martin Parr’s photo from the collection titled “This world on vacation” is a photo of an oblivious tourist who is sticking out like a sore thumb. Parr’s photo’s tend to point to the humor of life, while pointing to truth as well. The truth to this photo is sometime people, especially tourists, can be unaware of their surroundings, which speaks to our culture.

Overall Parr’s photos tend to match this style. To quote a critic on Parr’s photography, “… his photograph’s 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.”
