Parr on seeing

Secret Britain travel guide part one: Photographer Martin Parr on the beauty of everyday objects | Travel | The Guardian

I would urge everyone to start looking at the world in a different way. Spend some time looking at everyday objects, at their design, their shape, their individual characteristics. Think ahead and imagine their significance. Many are interesting and aesthetically pleasing in their own right, if you just give them some attention. And of course, the discipline of taking out a camera and documenting the things around you on film is a great way to start to open your eyes wider.
--Martin Parr
