Martin Parr: Small World

Small World is a biting, very funny satire in which photographer Martin Parr looks at tourism worldwide, exposing the increasingly homogenous ‘global culture’ where in the search for different cultures those same cultures are destroyed. Parr’s larger-than-life troupe of tourists are ultimately bemused victims of consumerism, locked into our insatiable craving for ‘the new’. This new edition of Small World features an introduction by Geoff Dyer.

Published: UK and US, Dewi Lewis, 2007 revised edition
