– Research the photo techniques of Martin Parr and Philip-Lorca diCorcia

Martin Parr is one of Britain’s best known photographers, bridging the gap between art and documentary photography. His photographic projects often look at modern society and in particular foreign travel and tourism, motoring, family and relationships, and food. Although many of his photos have simplistic qualities they still manage to hold the viewers interest and provoke emotions, usually of laughter.

“I tend to just snap at what I find and see, but occasionally I do a portrait that’s set up. But most of it is candid. Yes, I suppose there’s a bit of luck involved but if you take lots of photographs, you earn luck.”- Martin Parr
