              ToiletMartin PaperParr is a new, special edition of Toiletpaper published by Damiani. This unique edition celebrates a new suite of pictures presenting a back-to-back of images made in collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari on the one side and Martin Parr on t...he other. The recipe is very tasty: the founders of Toiletpaper hosted Martin Parr as a special guest and asked him to form a dialogue with Toiletpaper images, coming back to them with a photograph from his archive for each image. The result is a rapid succession of images in which irony, subversion and provocation force the viewer to the impelling discovery of the next pair of images. And if you are not yet satiated by the end of this issue, you have only to start once more at the beginning.

              During his long career as a photographer, Martin Parr has always photographed on beaches, particularly in the UK. He has often used the beach as a laboratory to experiment with new cameras and techniques. So far example, when he changed from black and white to medium format colou...r in the early 80s his first major project was about New Brighton, a run down seaside resort near Liverpool. In recent months he has started exploring the beach with the aid of a telephoto lens. This lens is rarely used in the world of art and documentary photography so it is a challenge to find new ways of using it. Often this involves incorporating the vegetation on the perimeter with the beach as a backdrop, both in and out of focus. So over his long career he has tried everything from a close up macro lens, a medium format wide angled camera and finally this latest offering with the telephoto.

              Martin Parr's affectionate homage to the German culture of allotment gardening Martin Parr's (born 1952) Allotment Gardeners is a fond and humorous portrait of one of the great German cliches: the allotment gardener. Photographing in five allotments in Dusseldorf and Krefeld, Par...r met Mathis, just 15 years old, who runs the garden for his father, a multigenerational operation growing strictly organic fruit and vegetables; he also spoke with young parents who share a garden; with Ingo the cactus breeder; with Michael the miniature train enthusiast and with Petra the tomato woman. As always, Parr's images achieve a rare balance of warmth and hilarity. When people laugh and cry at the same time when looking at my pictures, that's precisely the reaction the pictures evoke in me, he says. The things are neither fundamentally good, nor bad. I am always interested in portraying both extremes.

              Martin Parr's collection of photobooks is one of the finest to have ever been assembled and The Protest Box is a boxset which brings together five books from that collection as facsimile reprints. Parr has selected diverse books which each deal with the subject of protest in quit...e different ways. From the documentation of various protest movements to the actual book being a form of protest, all these reprints are gems within the history of photographic publishing. A few are known but many are new, even to the connoisseur of photography books. All these books are virtually impossible to locate, so these reprints will make a substantial contribution to our understanding of this sub-genre of the photobook. The box set is accompanied by a booklet which includes an introduction by Martin Parr, an essay discussing the wider context of these books by Gerry Badger, and English translations of all the texts in the books. Enrique Bostelmann America: un Viaje a traves de la injusticaFirst published in 1970 by Siglo I Editores, Mexico City; Bostelmann, a Mexican photographer, journeyed through Latin America looking for examples of injustice, such as the exploitation of indigenous Indians who were forced into factories and menial jobs. Paolo Gasparini Para verte major, America LatinaFirst published in 1972 by Siglo I Editores, Mexico City; Gasparini, an Italian born photographer who has lived in Caracas most of his life, traversed Latin America to document the contrast between communism and capitalism. The book also documents and uses graffiti and graphics to emphasis his polemic. Dirk Alvermann AlgeriaFirst published in 1961 in Berlin, GDR; Alvermann, a photographer originally born in West Germany, published his book about both sides of the Algerian conflict in East Berlin. The radical design was inspired by Russian film stills.
