Quotes by Martin Parr

I think the ordinary is a very under-exploited aspect of our lives because it is so familiar.

— Martin Parr

Modern technology has taken the angst out of achieving the perfect shot. For me, the only thing that counts is the idea behind the image: what you want to see and what you’re trying to say. The idea is crucial. You have to think of something you want to say and expand upon it.

— Martin Parr

I have been photographing people dancing for 20 or 30 years now, and I think I will eventually do a book of dancing photos.

— Martin Parr

Sometimes you feel uncomfortable taking a photograph, but that’s all part of the job.

— Martin Parr

Fashion pictures show people looking glamorous. Travel pictures show a place looking at its best, nothing to do with the reality. In the cookery pages, the food always looks amazing, right? Most of the pictures we consume are propaganda.
