This weekend a major new photography exhibition - Martin Parr: Return to #Manchester - launches at @MCRArtGallery.

#MartinParr studied at Manchester Polytechnic (now Manchester Metropolitan University) from 1970-73; he shot some of his earliest social #documentary work whilst he was a student there, including Prestwich Mental Hospital, 1972. (Prestwich was published earlier this year by @caferoyalbooks.) He has continued to visit Manchester over the past four decades, making work which has featured in many Parr series including Bad Weather and Spending Time.

As a part of this new exhibition, #ManchesterArtGallery have commissioned Martin Parr to create a 2018 #portrait of the city. Parr has returned several times throughout the year and produced a new body of work, which when juxtaposed with previous Parr Manchester #photography, highlights both change and continuity in the city and humanity.

This week we present a selection of the early black and white work from the exhibition.
Martin Parr: Return to Manchester will be on display from 16 NOV 2018 to 22 APR 2019.
