Colour Before Color

Colour Before Color - 1970's European Color Photography at Hasted Hunt Gallery. "...Martin Parr, the British photographer famous for color work that both relishes and skewers contemporary vulgarity, is ever so politely miffed that William Eggleston, Stephen Shore, Joel Meyerowitz, and other Americans tend to get all the credit for introducing color to the black-and-white world of art photography in the seventies. To counter this notion, Parr has organized 'Colour Before Color,' a savvy, pointedly argumentative show at Hasted Hunt that rounds up six European photographers — Luigi Ghirri, Ed Van der Elsken, Carlos Pérez Siquier, Keld Helmer-Petersen, John Hinde, and Peter Mitchell — whose achievements in color have gone largely unnoticed."
