Highlights from the Martin Parr Foundation collection

Join Isaac Blease for this online talk about the Martin Parr Foundation collection.

Isaac has worked for the foundation since 2019, cataloging the hundreds of thousands of prints and photobooks within the collection.

These include works by Tony Ray-Jones, Chris Killip, Shirley Baker, Pogus Caesar, and Vinca Petersen, all of whom feature in our Island Life exhibition. It’s a collection that tells many stories in Britain and Ireland through photography, from the post-war period onward. Together these works  trace the ever-changing fabric of society.

In this talk Isaac will discuss the many highlights within the Martin Parr Foundation collection – as well as the ones that got away.

Speaker: Isaac Blease, curatorial consultant on the Island Life exhibition.

This event is part of the Bristol Photo Festival programme for 2021.
