About the Author

Martin Parr is one of Britain's best-known contemporary photographers, with a broad international following, and President of Magnum, the world-famous photo agency. He has published widely and exhibited internationally, including a retrospective of his work in 2002, run by the Barbican Art Gallery and the National Media Museum, and a major exhibition currently curated by him at the Science Museum: 'Only in England: Photographs by Tony Ray-Jones and Martin Parr'. His publications include influential photo-books such as The Last Resort: Photographs of New Brighton (1996), Small World (1995), and Think of England (2005). Simon Winchester, OBE, is a British writer, journalist, and broadcaster. As a journalist he covered major events, including Bloody Sunday and the Watergate Scandal. He is the author of Atlantic: A Vast Ocean of a Million Stories (2010), The Professor and the Madman (1999), The Map that Changed the World (2001), and A Crack in the Edge of the World (2005), all of which have been New York Times bestsellers.

Reviews

Parr is often accused of mocking his subject matter, but while containing the occasional quirk, this is a largely straight documentation of a subject that already happily embraces moments of absurdity with great seriousness. * Eliza Williams, Creative Review * Martin Parr's star has never been higher. * Geoff Harris, Amateur Photographer * In Oxford the celebrated photographer Martin Parr has gathered a set of 118 plates of Oxford scenes and characters, accompanied by a reminiscence of student life in the 1960s by Simon Winchester, and beautifully published by Oxford University Press... eye-catching and stimulating. * Revd. Dr. Martin Wellings, Methodist Recorder Vol.17 *
