British photographer Martin Parr has a reputation as the great chronicler of modern life, with his "lurid, intimate, and immediately relatable" images, capturing the everyday life, strangers, and English working class.

"I love photography because it's my way of relating to the world out there and I can digest this and process it and come up with photographs to, hopefully, have the ambiguity and the contradictions you see in modern life. I mean, I'm from Britain, so one of my aims over my career is to accumulate an archive about contemporary Britain I sort of loved and hated at the same time and again, that contradiction can be expressed through photography."
