Only Human: Photographs by Martin ParrBritain in the time of Brexit is seen through the lens of Martin Parr, a photographer famous for his wry observations of Britishness. The new works form just one section of Only Human: Photographs by Martin Parr which opens at the National Portrait Gallery this spring. Featuring portraits of people from around the world, the exhibition examines national identity today, both in the UK and abroad. The exhibition also focuses on the British Abroad, including photographs made in British Army camps overseas, and Parr's long term study of the British 'Establishment', revealing the obscure rituals and ceremonies of British life. His portraits of celebrities, most of which have never been exhibited before, also go on display, showing British fashion legends Vivienne Westwood and Paul Smith, contemporary artists Tracey Emin and Grayson Perry and world-renowned football player Pele.

 

About National Portrait Gallery

The National Portrait Gallery houses portraits of significant figures from the late 15th century to the present day. This isn't the place to come for serious works of exceptional artistic merit - the overriding aim of the National Portrait Gallery is to reflect the status of the sitter, not the artist - but where else in London could you hope to find The Beatles, Henry VIII, Sir Richard Branson and JK Rowling all hanging out together? The appeal of this gallery (opened in 1856) rests simply in its comprehensive commemoration of British history from the late 15th century to the present day through the medium of portraiture.
