painted photographs

Photographer and collector Martin Parr’s ‘painted photographs’, found in flea markets and second-hand shops, are press prints and publicity shots of actors, musicians and sports stars from the post-war decades. The images have been ‘painted’ by newspapers or magazines to improve their reproduction or indicate areas for cropping.
