Martin Parr is a chronicler of our age. In the face of the constantly growing flood of images released by the media, his photographs offer us the opportunity to see the world from his unique perspective. Opened in 2017, the Martin Parr Foundation supports emerging, established and overlooked photographers making work in and around the British Isles.

He was Professor of Photography at The University of Wales Newport campus from 2004 to 2012; President of Magnum Photos between 2013-2017 (joined in 1994); Guest Artistic Director for the Rencontres d’Arles in 2004; Guest curator at New York Photo Festival in 2008; Curator of the Brighton Photo Biennial in 2010 and the Strange and Familiar exhibition at the Barbican, London in 2016.
