Ecouté a Martin Parr

Is Martin Parr the first photographer to be honoured in popular song? French singer Vincent Delerm’s “Martin Parr” featured on his 2008 album, Quinze Chansons, and he is known to perform the song live complete with a Parr slide-show. While photography-inspired tunes crop up now and then (St. Etienne’s The Bad Photographer and, er, Tommy Steele’s Flash, Bang, Wallop for example) we can’t think of any other snappers inspiring songs directly. Until Gavin here came up with a cracker: Uptown Top Rankin by Anthea & Donna. Wallop indeed. Any more? Click through to see Delerm performing Martin Parr in Paris.
