Martin Parr - taking our photo
Super London T-shirt brand GINZA have produced a series of limited edition t-shirts in collaboration with the artist him self. T-shirts depicting Britain, lazy sundays, seaside jaunts, sunburn, deck-chairs, and cream teas. The motif of union jack, laden over greasy spoons and characters servicing and queuing for the traditional english fry- up
Greasy spoon style waitresses dressed in aprons,served us.
Soup served and in one of his postcards at the dinner.
Final course of Bake-well biscuit and Lemon curd served in a jam-jar with cling film top and 1st price certificate signed by Martin Parr.
It was great to have a chat with Martin he looked very excited to be there and be involved what a super tribute to his years of work. Below myself and Gareth with Martin Parr.
A few goodies signed by Martin for keepsake :)
Heres a view of the table at which we sat with the gulls t-shirt i was given - i sneakily got this signed too :)
A brillant touch i really enjoyed was the photo-booth, massive Parr picture on the outside and food as backdrops. Look what fun we had :)
We loved the props around the room, involving them we had such great images but the most fun was with Martin in the booth with us as seen below :)
With that in mind and my favourite course below, I had the best evening, we toasted good times, sang along to 90s pop classics, I got to meet a photographer who I have always admired greatly and went home with a massive smile on my face!! Thank you Ginza it was FANTASTIC!! Good luck with the range, i think its SUPER!! For more info and to buy your t-shirt click here. T-shirts
