Putting aside the question of greatness, there can be no doubt that Martin Parr is the funniest living photographer, master of the compositional deadpan and tender, trenchant chronicler of an overcast, littered, drab, chintzy, consumerist and beloved Albion. Parr, the Hogarth of the Thatcher era and beyond, has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1988, and will be on hand to discuss his films.

Martin Parr in Person is a screening as part of the series Magnum Photos at 70. Click here for more info.
