Only Human brought together works by one of Britain’s best-known and most widely celebrated photographers, Martin Parr. Including recognisable photographs alongside works never before exhibited, it focused on one of his most engaging subjects – people.

The exhibition included portraits of people from around the world, with a special focus on Parr’s wry observations of Britishness, explored through a series of projects that investigated British identity today.

By turns witty, surprising, and ingenious, Martin Parr's photographs reveal the eccentricities of modern life with affection and insight. The Only Human book, published by Phaidon, examines what it means to be human at a time of both change and retrospection. By Philip Prodger, with an introduction by Grayson Perry.
