Martin Parr represented by Rocket Gallery, London

Common Sense was made with a macro lens and a ring flash, these colour photographs appropriate the bright, saturated language of the consumer world and turn it back on itself. Plastic glasses, furry slippers and greasy food – Common Sense is a hilarious yet sobering document of the relationship between consumerism and the everyday. In 2000 Rocket sold a complete installation of photographs from this series to Tate Gallery, London.
