Pour Martin Parr, "seul l'humour peut nous permettre de trouver le salut face à l'atrophie morale et à l'absurdité qui caractérise nos vies quotidiennes".

For Martin Parr, the moral atrophy and preposterousness of our daily lives means we can only find salvation through adopting a certain sense of humor.

If you're ready to go a step further... you shoud try this!

I find humor in irony too. I like tea by the man-made lakeside. Really enjoying today's CV theme - we should all find a bit of humor every day. Cheers~

J'aime le travail de Martin Parr... sans doute pour son oeil "décalé"...

Parfait pour un sourire et un clin d'oeil !

On peut rire de tout...
