The book “Early Works”, co-published by RRB Photobooks and the Martin Parr Foundation and published on October 16, pays tribute to Martin Parr. If the British photographer has revolutionized documentary photography through his work in rural England and his humorous observations, “Early Works” presents mostly black and white shots, taken between 1970 and 1984. The book includes unpublished photos, and footage from early series such as The Non Conformists, Bad Weather, and A Fair Day, but also photographs lesser-known, immortalised in China and India in the 80s.
