HotShoe - 208 Martin Parr
Hotshoe has been in print since 1977. Renowned as a cutting-edge photography magazine, it is well known in an industry that has changed dramatically since the 1970s.
In 2002, Hotshoe was reinvented as a showcase of photographic portfolios, with a multitude of voices and opinion that include some of the most influential names in photography today, writing in one of the few truly independent publications, and distributed throughout the world.
In this issue:
Martin Parr, one of the most important figures in British photography, is well known for documenting the English social classes. A prominent member of Magnum Photos since 1994, he changed how we see British society and documentary photography with his use of colour rather than black-and-white. With the help of the Martin Parr Foundation, we've put together a collection of portfolios from his vast body of work, as well as an extended interview with Aaron Schuman, personal essays from his contemporaries including Alec Soth, Anna Fox, and Trent Parke, and a new story by Adam Ganz in response to Parr's Autoportraits in Crude Metaphors.
