Sofa Session / Colin Jones in Conversation with Martin Parr.
What led a dancer for the Royal Ballet to become a photographer?
Martin Parr travels to London to interview photographer Colin Jones.
They talk about how Colin’s career in the Royal Ballet resulted in a change of path to photography, how a dinner with Imelda Marcos influenced Colin’s politics, as well as the ins-and-outs of working on projects for UK broadsheet newspapers.
This sofa session is dedicated to Colin Jones, who died in 2021.
