Martin Parr
From the Pope to a Flat White

Martin Parr has been photographing in Ireland for over 4 decades. This extensive documentation – brought together for the first time – reveals the dramatic change the country has seen over the past forty years.

Martin Parr will discuss this body of work in the next MPF Photochat Live event – From the Pope to a Flat White.

The work begins with early black and white photography, documenting the Pope’s visit in 1979, as well as traditional aspects of rural life, such as horse fairs and dances. Progressing chronologically, we see McDonalds drive throughs and Dublin markets of the 90s, before the work culminates in gay weddings, gentrification and start-up companies of 2019.

This event coincides with the release of the latest Martin Parr photobook – From the Pope to a Flat White – published by Damiani, 2020.

Anyone attending this Zoom event is eligible for free UK postage on any Parr books ordered on the day of the talk. There is also the option to add a personalised Martin Parr dedication. More details coming soon.

Next year will see a series of exhibitions held across Ireland presenting this body of work, organised in association with Northern Narratives.

You can submit your questions via the Zoom chat function live on the night.
