Martin Parr – Kleingärtner
Publisher: Koenig Books, 2019
Hardcover, 96 pages, English/German
New in seal
With “Kleingärtner” Martin Parr created a new series, which he realized in five gardening associations in Düsseldorf and Krefeld. Here he met Mathis, just 15 years old, who runs the garden for his father, a multi-generation family who only grows fruit and vegetables from a strictly biological point of view, young families, beekeepers, cactus growers, hobby guides and Petra the “tomato woman”. With British humor, Martin Parr looks at this allotment garden species, which is deeply rooted in the original German cliché.
