Time Off (Cambodia, Angkor Wat), 2012
Featuring just six large prints by Parr, the show includes photographs taken from his travels around Europe and Asia.
Time Off (France, Paris), 2008
According to Rocket the images focus on individuals “preoccupied with appreciating the world around them. No one is totally relaxed; whether or not they are aware of the camera capturing their interactions. There is a restless search for achievements, or reflections, that are just out of reach. Purchasing a tourist souvenir will not offer comfort here”.
Parr has been represented by Rocket since 1997 when the gallery’s Jonathan Stephenson presented the photographer’s first commerical show in the capital.
