Essence of Essex

10

HONK! Want to hear Martin Parr in conversation?

We’d rather look at his Tell It Like It Is stunning photography to be honest…

Good news though.

You can hear Mr Parr in conversation, and marvel at his snappy snaps at Firstsite this Thursday.

In Conversation with Martin Parr – if you will – is the clothes peg in which to declare the winner of the Essence of Essex photo competition that Firstsite has been staging all summer.

The idea was that local snappers would be inspired by the current Work and Leisure Parr piece at the Golden Goose, and then snap away at some Essex geezer falling asleep in Castle Park.

All in the name of art, you understand.

Over 1,000 Sunny Colch snappers have done just that. Mr Parr will be announcing the winner this Thursday as part of his In Conversation talking shop. It all starts at 7pm.

Plus if you want to see Parr tackle the sloping walls of Firstsite, then you have until 2 October to catch Work and Leisure.

edit to add:

Apologies for the radio silence, btw. Personal family stuff and all round apathy in local politics is leading to a bit of a Chronic re-think.

Pondering…

But do go and see Mr Parr.
