As part of the Paris Photo Platform 2013, a conversation between Martin Parr and Gerry Badger took place on Friday, November 15th at Grand Palais, Paris.
They talked about their series "The Photobook, a History" (edited by Phaidon Press, 2013).
The Paris Photo Platform this year was co-directed by Nicolas Bourriaud, director of École nationale supérieure des beaux-arts de Paris and Chantal Pontbriand, curator and art critic, founder of Pontbriand W.O.R.K.S. [We_Myself and others_ Research_Knowledge_Systems].
The Platform was organized around three lines corresponding to the state of thinking and practices that provoke debate in the world of art and photography today:
- Photography challenged by the world
- An encyclopedic fantasy
- Photography, Painting, limits?
