DESCRIPTION

As part of our "New Pictures" series devoted to innovation in contemporary photography, the Minneapolis Institute of Arts invited British photographer Martin Parr to cross the pond and shoot photos covering the wealth of winter activities in Minnesota, from pond hockey to ice fishing.

The results of his endeavor are on view in his exhibition, "New Pictures 6: Martin Parr," opening April 20 in the Linda and Lawrence Perlman Gallery (262).

A member of the esteemed Magnum Photos, an international photographers' cooperative, Parr is one of the most renowned and celebrated photographers working today. He is known for his innovative use of color photography and his humorous approach to documenting the daily rituals of life. Parr is also recognized for his work as an editor of photo-based publications, and is credited with more than twenty compilations of his own work. In 2008, he was awarded the Royal Photographic Society Centenary Medal and the Baume & Mercier award for his career contributions to contemporary photography.
