In a unique visual dialogue, Déjà View brings together the work of beloved photographer Martin Parr, master of capturing the art in everyday existence, with The Anonymous Project’s archive of unidentified vintage slides, collected from across Europe and America. Surprising and delighting in their similarity, these affectionately matched images give a delicious feeling of déjà vu, while reminding us of photography’s greatest power: to intimately preserve everyday moments of humour, warmth, ennui and absurdity.
Featuring a transcribed conversation between Lee Shulman and Martin Parr about creating the project and what, for them, makes a good photograph: ‘This book is pure, simple and direct. For me, it’s everything I love most.’ – Martin Parr
