In this instalment of Sofa Sessions, Martin Parr is in conversation with the photographer John Bulmer. They talk about John Bulmer’s initial fascination with the mechanical side of photography through until the revelatory discovery of ‘the image’. We also hear about John’s love for the North of England, the challenges of shooting in colour and his transition into filmmaking. This sofa session was filmed in March 2021.
Produced by the Martin Parr Foundation.
