Hong Kong Parr is a new publication by award winning photographer Martin Parr, to coincide with his first solo exhibition in Hong Kong at Blindspot Gallery. Parr’s photographs of the city, taken in 2013, capture the barrage of fashion, food and colour in Hong Kong, one of the most densely populated cities in the world.

More about this book

Known for his satirical and humorous social documentary on modern life, this new project continues Parr's examination of consumption, leisure, food culture, and eccentricity. From Mainland tourists in Hong Kong's shopping districts, locals at the racecourse and ballroom, to raw food in the wet market, Parr captures the intensity of urban life in Hong Kong in an assault of food, fashion, and colour.

The photographs in this book were commissioned by Blindspot Gallery. A selection of the images will be included in the exhibition 'Martin Parr', Blindspot Gallery, Hong Kong.

He is known for his photographic projects that take an intimate, satirical and anthropological look at aspects of modern life, in particular documenting the social classes of England, and more broadly the wealth of the Western world. His major projects have been rural communities (1975–1982), The Last Resort (1983–1985), The Cost of Living (1987–1989), Small World (1987–1994) and Common Sense (1995–1999). Since 1994, Parr has been a member of Magnum Photos. He has had around 40 solo photobooks published, and has featured in around 80 exhibitions worldwide – including the international touring exhibition ParrWorld, and a retrospective at the Barbican Arts Centre, London, in 2002.
