Martin Parr and the BBC’s Nicholas Barker met when Barker was developing his influential 1992 series Signs of the Times, which explored British taste and the domestic landscape. Parr and Barker will discuss the confluence between film and photography and their work together in the 1990s. Their conversation will be preceded by a screening of Parr’s remarkable 1999 film Think of England, which explores ‘Britishness’ with Parr’s customary wit and precision. This event is chaired by Greg Hobson, Curator of Photographs at the National Media Museum.
