Best books 2015 by Martin Parr: Helge Skodvin’s 240 Landscape

"This book of landscapes featuring the famous Volvo 240 is a real gem. Sometimes the car is up front, sometimes you have to really search for it, and the great thing is no other car manages to get in the photo. The funniest landscape book I have ever seen."

Eivind’s World

In times when everyone and their dog seem to have declared photojournalism dead in terms of making a living, it may seem a bit senseless, not to say suicidal,  to devote most of one’s time to managing a collective of photojournalists trying to do just that. It involves posing oneself (and answering your wife) the...
