Since 2014, British photographer Martin Parr has been granted exclusive access to tennis’ most prestigious Grand Slams.
From the clay courts of Roland-Garros and heat of the Australian Open, to the green grass of Wimbledon and the hardcourts of the U.S., Parr has been able to capture a plethora of unique and evocative imagery that’s been consolidated into a limited-edition book.
Entitled Match Point: Tennis by Martin Parr, this unique publication boasts 80 vivid images — many of which are unpublished until now — that provide a distinctive look at tennis’ most iconic events. From picnickers, sun-hats and jugs of Pimms, to rain-stopped-play and walking umbrellas, Parr’s latest work is a timely reminder of the happiness sport can bring.
Match Point: Tennis by Martin Parr is available to pre-order now from Phaidon, retailing at £39.95 (approximately $56 USD).
