Martin Parr in conversation with Sean O’Hagan and Kate Fox
This one will be worth going to I am going to do my best to be at this myself. It will mean getting someone to cover my class and I might even try to get my class to attend if I can. Documentary Photographer Martin Parr was inspired by Tony Ray-Jones and I think this talk will be very interesting as I think the two people in conversation with Martin Parr will be able to engage him in an interesting debate.
Tuesday 19 November 2013, 19.45–21.15
Martin Parr reflects on the profound influence Tony Ray-Jones’s practice has had on his work and their shared interest in documenting English social ritual and behaviour, with Kate Fox, social anthropologist and author of Watching the English, and Sean O’Hagan, writer on art, culture and photography for the Guardian and Observer.
