Déjà View: Martin Parr x The Anonymous Project
- Martin Parr is one of Britain's most esteemed and well-loved photographers; he has published around 40 solo photobooks and has been a member of Magnum Photos for nearly 30 years
- The Anonymous Project has been widely featured and praised in the press, from BBC Culture to the Independent to The New York Times
In a unique visual dialog, Déjà View brings together the work of beloved photographer Martin Parr, master of capturing the art in everyday existence, with The Anonymous Project’s archive of unidentified vintage slides, collected from across Europe and America. Surprising and delighting in their similarity, these affectionately matched images celebrate photography’s power to capture the small moments of humor, warmth, ennui and absurdity that are in fact our most important of all. The Anonymous Project is dedicated to collecting and preserving mid-century color slides from around the world. Started in 2017 by filmmaker Lee Shulman, the project brings to light Kodachrome memories that might otherwise be lost forever.
