Our collection of over 5000 photobooks has been personally selected by Martin Parr. Although primarily dedicated to works from the British Isles, the library also contains noteworthy projects by international photographers working in Britain, and some of the best photobooks from around the world.

The library is open one day a week. Priority booking is given to members of the Foundation. Contact us at [email protected] to book either an early (10-1pm) or late (2-5pm) session from the dates available below.

*The library is currently closed during the Coronavirus lockdown. During this period, members will have online access to a rolling selection of past MPF artist talks*
