The small book “Martin Parr” from Phaidon has a relatively extensive introduction (I mean: for such a small book) to the work of Martin Parr. We see how he develops from a black and white photographer of British life into the critical flash & color photographer of life’s peculiarities as we know him today.
The book furthermore is a guide to how you can read a picture. Maybe a bit over the top now and then:
“… the picture recalls Bernini’s sculpture of Daphne sprouting leaves and branches… (picture of girl on school party).
“It must also refer to the psychological complexity of attending school”(boy with mother a grammar school).
Wonderful pictures of a stuffed owl, sausages, a cup of tea, and many other ordinary objects and scenes depicted in Parr’s unique manner.

Postcards from Cappadocia

10 years ago, I traveled through Turkey and, of course, also visited Cappadocia.

The tourism industry seemed a little lost at that time. Not sure if it was the season, or the general state of affairs. But to me these postcards outside a tourist shop reflected the state of confusion I felt.

Interesting article on streetphotography without a camera (spoiler: phone) and some iPhone apps (in Dutch)

Very happy with my iPhone for street photography. So is Peter van der Steege:

Then my apps:

Camera+ – nice app and can enables raw images on my iPhone 8.

Snapseed for postprocessing.

Standards iPhone Camera app: quick swipe from start screen. I would like to replace the swipe function to my Camera+, but found no option so far. Can you reprogram the from screen functionality or is Apple keeping that closed to their own apps?
