Conventional Photography.

Photographs by Martin Parr.
Harper's Books, East Hampton, New York, USA, 2017. 116 pp., color illustrations throughout.

Publisher's Description

Edition of 538 copies, which equals the number of US Electoral College votes.

Commissioned by CNN to document both the Republican and Democratic conventions, Martin Parr's Conventional Photography provides a window into the American political psyche at the dawn of the Trump era. Shot in his signature style emphasizing at once the banal and the outlandish, Parr deconstructs the divide between red and blue states in a full-bleed color haze. Bound dos-à-dos to reflect the dichotomy between parties, and to highlight the upside-down nature of what Bill Clinton referred to as a "whackadoodle" election.

Includes a laid-in letter with text by Martin Parr.

Imperfect copies are corner bumped.
