A series of strictly black-and-white images, Abandoned Morris Minors of the West of Ireland focuses on a subject less typically ubiquitous in Parr’s work: the car. Typical to Parr’s work, however, the Morris Minor is depicted with stark humanity in each frame, as if the cars themselves were human. The Morris Minor appears against a back-drop of different Irish landscapes: broken down on the side of the road, camouflaged by grass stalks in a field, abandoned on mountainous terrain on a rainy day. In one iconic image, a rooster peers out from the back interior of the abandoned car. A beautiful example of landscape photography, (motor) portraiture and, of course, humor.
