Only Human brings together some of Martin Parr’s best known photographs with a number of works never exhibited before to focus on one of his most engaging subjects – people. The exhibition will include portraits of people from around the world, with a special focus on Parr’s wry observations of Britishness, explored through a series of projects that investigate British identity today, including new works which reveal Parr’s take on the social climate in Britain in the aftermath of the EU referendum.

Opening Hours:

Open daily 10:00-18:00

Friday Lates until 21:00

Supported by Gucci and the Bern Schwartz Family Foundation. The National Portrait Gallery Spring Season 2019 is sponsored by Herbert Smith Freehills.

Accompanying book published by Phaidon.
