Artist Love... Martin Parr

Since this month is all about L-O-V-E for me, I though I'd share one of my FAVORITE artists of all time... Martin Parr.

He's a genius and his photos just speak to me for some reason.

I first discovered his work while studying at Cambridge University during a summer in law school. In need of an air-conditioned escape while hanging in London, I checked out the fabulous Tate Modern and stumbled across his brilliant work.

His photos - with their color and familiarity - make me happy and completely comfortable. I love them... and it's all about what you love... regardless of what your reason may be!

Thanks, wonderful link. Yes, the top is great...I assume you have survived. I was so smart-alecky & then lost power for 7 days. Held out for 4-1/2 days & decamped for heated house of friends. Back last night w/bags of groceries...I hope this will not bring on high winds as punishment for spending too much $.

ciao, Prippy

This weather has been beyond brutal. It makes the thought of eating ice cream outside laughable! With that being said, I'm happy enough to look at those little kiddies enjoy their cones near Brighton Beach!\

Hopefully the worst is behind us.
