Presented by the Qvale Galleri in Oslo, Norway, this exhibition gives an overview of Martin Parr‘s career. The exhibition consists of a selection of 20 pictures, from different series Parr has worked since the 70s up to today.

His projects Common Sense, The Last Resort and Bored Couples circle around human life and explores phenomena such as social classes, mass tourism and cohabitation. Martin Parr casts an ironic eye on the every day and the random. Ranging from communication to consumption and leisure, the themes explored by Parr are revealing of human life and social interaction in the modern age.
