Martin Parr "Fashion Magazine"
This event has ended.
This exhibition is the first large-scale solo show of renowned English photographer Martin Parr's work to be held in Japan. Known for his uniquely conceptualized and designed photography compilations, and his critical overviews of photography, his "Fashion Magazine", published in 2005, is perhaps his most important work, taking the simple concept of a fashion magazine and filling it with lavish imagery and his trademark irony. This exhibition will display 100 of his colour works, including his photographs Paul Smith's Autumn and Winter collection.

"You just have to accept that people respond in a gut way, so if people don't like you, that's fair enough. And in the end more people liked me than didn't like me," Parr says. "I found the controversy interesting. I often have controversy surrounding my work, and in the end it is interesting. It does no harm — it's better to be talked about than ignored."
