Martin Parr – Think of England (1999)

 

One of my all time favourite documentaries, photographer Martin Parr travels around England during the summer of 1998, armed with a DV camera and a mission to define ‘Englishness’ through the nation’s subjects.

Highlights include: walking holidays in the rain, trampolining at the seaside, dual-carriageway picnics, casual bigotry and disqualification due to mouldy jam.
