Rarely seen Parr work to be exhibited Somerset House, London 21st April - 7th May, 2017 as part of 'Sony World Photography Awards & Martin Parr - 2017 Exhibition'. 

"Pictures tell stories, and photography is the language I find most expressive. There is something more nuanced about a picture than a sentence; it leaves more room for a viewer to wonder."

"I like being able to look at the photographs and understand what they are telling me without having to read the text description about them. I want the photographs to speak for themselves."

We choose the last of our entries of the week, before the Open competition of the 2017 Sony World Photography Awards close on January 5. 


To coincide with the award, a special exhibition will present a unique selection of images, books and film from Parr's career, part of the 'Sony World Photography Awards & Martin Parr - 2017 Exhibition' at Somerset House, London, 21st April - 7th May.

We partnered with PhotoShelter for the 2017 Photographer’s Guide to Photo Contests. Get a rundown of 42 photo contests worldwide.

One winning photographer will be awarded with €12,000 worth of ZEISS lenses, €3,000 travel expenses to complete a dream photography project in the location of their choice + a trip to London!
