Martin Parr, an English photographer from the famous Magnum agency is currently hosting an exhibition at Colette that showcases a series of wonderful photographs taken at the Disneyland in Paris. Martin Parr’s work is often considered to be rather satirical and highlights the irony in the modern society, and the photographs shown in the exhibition are again true to Parr’s style and reveals Disneyland in an ultra-colored, honest and straighforward perspective. The opening of the exhibition also featured a full costumed Mickey along with helium Balloons of Mickey floating about in the exhibition space; it is almost a Disney dream come true. If you are in the area this is a exhibition definitely worth checking out if not for yourself then for the kids. Check out the images below.
