Conventional Photography, published by Harper’s Books, 2017. Commissioned by CNN to document both the Republican and Democratic conventions, Martin Parr's "Conventional Photography" provides a window into the American political psyche at the dawn of the Trump era. Shot in his signature style emphasising at once the banal and the outlandish, Parr deconstructs the divide between red and blue states in a full-bleed colour haze. Bound dos-à-dos to reflect the dichotomy between parties, and to highlight the upside-down nature of what Bill Clinton referred to as a "whackadoodle" election.
