“You earn your luck” – Martin Parr

Martin Parr is curating the Brighton Photographic Biennial, which as a local resident is pretty exciting. Even more so when he has managed to secure appearances from both Alec Soth and Stephen Gill.

In the meantime, here is a short video of him explaining his best shot. It’s interesting to hear him describe his ability to capture these moments as luck. I guess it is. Parr has no idea what is going to happen and when. So, it takes patience. It also takes experience.
