Verified profile


His gaze is immediately recognisable, a brightly colored magnifying glass that creates stories starting from reality, which captures authentic and often eccentric moments of everyday life, capturing the essence of a place or situation through the search for the perfect detail, which offers a unique and often provocative perspective on contemporary society.

Martin Parr (born 1952) – undoubtedly one of the most successful and recognized British documentary photographers of our time – chooses Mudec Photo for an exhibition project curated directly by him together with Magnum Photos, with which the Museum of Cultures of Milan continues the successful collaboration on reportage and documentary photography started in 2022 with the exhibitions on Henri Cartier-Bresson and Robert Capa.


This new project insists on subjects told to the visitor in full coherence with the renewed vision of the Museum, which for two years now has been increasingly focused on anthropological themes and on the narration of visions of art thanks to contemporary languages.

Through a photographic chronicle without filters and outside of rhetoric, the exhibition itinerary opens 'in black and white', that is, with the series "The Non-Conformists", images taken from 1975 to 1980 by an unprecedented, young and inspired Parr, who had just finished art school. For this project, the author at the age of twenty-three, Martin Parr, together with his partner (and future wife) Susie Mitchell, moves from the London metropolis to the suburbs of Yorkshire. For five years, the couple documented the events they witnessed on a daily basis, particularly those of the Nonconformists, named after the Methodist and Baptist chapels that were becoming numerous in the area. Martin photographs both the surrounding environment and the blue-collar lives of factory workers, miners, farmers, devotees, gamekeepers, pigeon breeders and "husbands led by the nose", producing a historic and moving document that defines the fiercely independent character of Northern England from State Anglicism.
