Overview

Following Martin Parr's celebrated Boring Postcards series, a new installment of his bizarre postcard collection. Domestic icons in a Catholic tradition, these cards were produced in the countries of Southern Europe during the 1970s, showing shamelessly idealized photographs of romantic lovers--frolicking in the hills, holding hands in the sunset, staring dreamily into each others eyes--and of perfect families--greeting Dad after work, in the kitchen baking a cake with Mom, singing together at the piano... A revealing social-historical document and very funny, for all fans of Martin Parr and connoisseurs of photographic kitsch.
