This weekend, my partner and I drove to Bristol, to the Martin Parr Foundation, to have our portrait shot. Photographer Martin Parr, a member of Magnum Photos, is well known for his quirky style of photography, of illustrating the UK, in particular, at leisure. Parr set up this foundation in 2017, with a goal of presenting his work, and the work of other British and Irish photographers.

As a fund-raising event, he held a portrait studio session over two days this weekend. This was a wonderful occasion to have a portrait shot by one of the great living photographers, at an affordable price, and to help support the foundation.
