About Home and Abroad
This book was edited from Parr’s early colour photographs by Mark Holborn and takes the viewer on a journey through modern life. Beginning with the ideal home and family, the book follows a Parr-guided tour through supermarkets, shopping malls, seaside resorts, theme-parks, tourist hot spots and safari parks.
This photographic study provides a social observation of our time, bringing together all of Parr’s colour projects. It looks at theme park culture, seaside resorts, the middle classes at home and out shopping, the Pyramids, and a Moscow McDonalds.
A hilarious social observation of our time, this book links all Martin Parr’s various colour projects. It starts in the English home, then radiates out to the world. He passes through theme park culture and seaside resorts, and photographs the middle classes at home and out shopping. He encounters a ubiquitous consumer-culture stretching out of Britain and reaching the foot of the pyramids, the Eiffel tower.
