A brand new book of Martin Parr's early black & white photos has been co-published by RRB Photobooks and the Martin Parr Foundation. This book contains some of Parr's familiar early photos from his series The Non Conformists, Bad Weather and A Fair Day. However, the book will also include more than 20 previously unseen images, to help add breadth and perspective to Parr's body of work. 

Many of the images are taken from The Non Conformists, which was shot between 1975 and 1979. In this series, Parr documented the town of Hebden Bridge showing traditional life in decline. Meanwhile, Bad Weather was Parr's first monograph and acted as a survey of how the people of UK and Ireland go about their days when experiencing inclement weather.
