Beetles + Huxley gallery in association with Rocket Gallery London, are proud to present Martin Parr: Signs of the Times. Containing modern and vintage prints, this will be the first time photographs from this important series have been shown at a solo exhibition in London.
Martin Parr is one of Britain’s most significant photographers, best known for his sharp eye and sense of humour. Over his thirty year career he has focused on capturing ordinary people doing ordinary things – at the seaside, in supermarkets, at village country fairs or on holiday abroad. Often highly saturated and brightly coloured Parr has become known as a commentator and recorder of Britain’s finely nuanced class system.
