France, Paris, 2012, Souvenirs

The Eiffel Tower is the most renowned building in Paris and has become an icon of the city and its culture worldwide. Here, Martin Parr has framed numerous miniature multicoloured towers arranged in a tourist shop. The tiny, foundation-less buildings, complete with diamante detail, are stacked unceremoniously on top of one another, drawing attention to the tourism industry behind the icon and to the combination of reverence and enterprise that surrounds the monument.

The Magnum at 70, Series 2 – Paris Collection is the second in a series of collections showcasing and celebrating the work of members of the renowned artists’ cooperative, Magnum Photos. The photographic and video works are released on Sedition as curated selections of digital editions as part of a yearlong partnership with Magnum Photos throughout 2017. The Magnum at 70 partnership celebrates 70 years of Magnum Photos by revisiting iconic, era-defining photographic works from the past seven decades and looking ahead to the digital future of photography.
