Martin Parr Takes us Behind the Scenes of Tennis’ Most Prestigious Events

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Entitled Match Point: Tennis by Martin Parr, this unique publication boasts 80 vivid images — many of which are unpublished until now — that provide a distinctive look at tennis’ most iconic events.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).
