Synopsis 
  
This work combines lurid colour with the author's sense of irony to provide a humorous look at contemporary life.  
  
 
  
From the Publisher 
  
Hilarious & Ironic - Luscious & Lurid - Parr at his best! 
  
The launch of this extraordinary book was celebrated by simultaneous exhibitions in more than 40 different cities world-wide including London, Cardiff, Amsterdam, Dublin, Paris, Cologne, Berlin, Stuttgart, Rome, Milan, Florence, Zurich, Stockholm, Oslo, New York, Los Angeles, Boston, Montreal, Ontario, Tokyo, Singapore & Sydney. This was probably the largest exhibition of work ever held by one artist – a truly global project.  
  
 
  
Internationally recognised as a brilliant satirist of contemporary life Martin Parr has led the development of the British documentary tradition with wit, style, and intelligence in a career that boasts numerous publications and exhibitions. His work is held by major galleries and museums worldwide. Common Sense combines extravagantly lurid and luscious colour with Parr's trademark sense of irony. Though hilariously funny – as always with Parr's work – there is a sharp and biting edge to the humour.
