Martin Parr: Return to Manchester
Iconic British social documentary photographer, Martin Parr began his career in Manchester, studying at Manchester Polytechnic (now Manchester Metropolitan University) from 1970-73.
He has revisited the city many times over the last 40 years. Ranging from black and white images of Prestwich Mental Hospital in 1972 and Yates Wine Lodges in 1982-3, to colour pictures of people shopping in 1986 and 2008, this book brings together Parr’s Manchester photographs.
The images show a diverse, inclusive and multi-cultural city and reveal people’s passions, skills, relationships and quirks – celebrating the humanity of the everyday.
