Fotospeed announces Martin Parr as Foto Fest 2019 headliner

This September, Fotospeed’s Foto Fest returns for its fourth iteration. A one-day festival of talks and exclusive deals from leading manufacturers, Foto Fest’s star guest this year will be none other than legendary documentary photographer Martin Parr.

One of the best-known documentary shooters of his generation, Parr has been a member of Magnum Photos since 1994, and is known in particular for his incisive work documenting the social class strata of England. He’s had more than 100 of his own books published and has edited a further 30.
