Martin Parr/Kitsch Culture

September 20, 2009

Ran across this blog about Martin Parr…

http://www.we-make-money-not-art.com/archives/2009/09/parrworld-the-collection-of-ma.php

The post is about an exhibit in Paris that shows the photography of Parr alongside objects he has collected.  Some of Parr’s work explores tourism so the link here between kitsch and tourism is strong.  I am very interested in his personal postcard collection, as I have one of those myself.  I think this idea is a great one.  Show source material along with work.  Especially when the source material is as fantastic as the Hussein watch of Parr’s.
