First he’s looking out from the jaws of a shark, then posing with Vladimir Putin in the same karate outfit or standing in front of Jesus with a halo. When MARTIN PARR travels, he visits local photographic studios to take self-portraits. The British Magnum photographer deliberately grants the commissioning party a free choice of setting and composition. His Autoportrait series (launched in 1991) is not only humorous, but also reflects the global sociology of photographic taste and depicts the virtually infinite diversity of digital imaging possibilities.
