Martin Parr Book: Sleeping Japanese, Galerie du Jour Agnès b

Availability: In stock  

Artist book collector.
Contrary to our vision of a hyperstressed and overpopulated Japan, Martin Parr delicately isolated sleeping passengers, serene to the point of becoming perfectly disturbing, thus lost in this public, shameless abandonment.
Beyond the anecdote, their immobility grabs us like a reunion, at the most trivial of moments, with the intimacy of dreams.
And then, as always with Martin Parr, the real point is also in the criticism of the faith that we grant to photographic images.
Who tells us, after all, that people who seem to sleep actually sleep?

Martin Parr (born 1952 in Epsom) is a British photographer, member of the Photographic Cooperative Magnum Photos since 1994.
