Trent Parke
MPF Photochat Live

Magnum photographer Trent Parke will discuss his photographic practice, focusing on his latest photobook Crimson Line, published by Stanley Barker 2020.

Crimson Line presents Trent’s new experimental work, influenced by the ephemeral colours of dawn and dusk. The multitude of reds sparked his curiosity about the colour crimson, a colour used in commercial products, harvested from the crushed and boiled bodies of the female scale insect, the Cochineal. A dye used primarily in cosmetics and food colouring.

Shot around the Australian city of Adelaide, Trent Parke explores a crimson landscape dominated by ship yards, chimneys, and the BHP steelworks.

Followed by a discussion with Martin Parr and questions from the audience.

Signed copies of Crimson Line are available from the MPF shop here.
