Be inspired to create a new version of a classic Parr―sunbathers in Speedos, tea-drinkers and rainbow cakes, socks with sandals―and in the process, experience his vision in a new way. A riotous take on the eccentricities and peculiarities of today’s world, for all fans of Parr’s work.
Colourful and with tongue-in-cheek photographs, his comedy of contemporary manners have been transformed into a colouring book. Parr’s publication is an affectionate and hilarious catalogue of human foibles―our bad fashion choices, messy foods, trashy souvenirs and the tourists who buy them and all the often-overlooked silly details of our daily life rendered afresh.
All entries for the Martin Parr Coloring Book! contest must be received by 2 December 2017. To enter, contestants must post a photo of their coloured in rendition of New Brighton, England, 1982-85 (coloured within the book pages only) on Instagram and tag with #ParrColoringContest and @aperturefnd. After the close of the contest on 2 December 2017, Martin Parr will judge the entries. The winner will win a signed print of New Brighton, England, 1983-85.
