Martin Parr – Bad Weather

I was recommended by my tutor to look at Martin Parr’s project, ‘Bad Weather’ as an example of good work that can be produced in poor lighting conditions (mentioned in my first assignment).

Fortunately, his work is showcased on Magnum Photos.  (https://www.magnumphotos.com/C.aspx?VP3=SearchResult&ALID=29YL53GUHDY – accessed 3.3.15).

I find this work engaging – each picture tells a story and the stark contrasts offered in poor weather conditions are worked with to create interesting images.  While I often work in poor weather conditions (little choice in UK winter months), Martin Parr’s work will encourage me to embrace these conditions as an opportunity, rather than something that just has to be lived with.
