L'Oeil de La Lettre
Martin Parr, Goutte d'Or
My “poor French” at “La Goutte d’Or”, the excuse offered by MARTIN PARR to help forget the images of the “dealers” in “La Goutte d’Or” neighborhood, that he was not able to bring. As part of the obliged media effect, a Socialist party delegate from the district came to greet the press to show his engagement with the local community. Everything exuded the politically correct. The images belong to Martin Parr, whether we love them or not, but they do not leave you indifferent. Either way, it was an event.
