Small World is a biting and very funny satire in which Martin Parr observes global tourism and the tourist's search for authentic cultures that are themselves destroyed in that search.

Martin Parr has worked on numerous photographic projects and developed an international reputation for his innovative imagery, his oblique approach to social documentary, and his input to photographic culture within the United Kingdom and abroad. In 2002 a major retrospective exhibition was initiated by The Barbican in London and is touring internationally to 2008.
