This exceptionally presented monograph catalogues Parr’s Self Portrait Project, an expansive, iterative project that dominated Parr’s practice from 1982 into the early nineties. Compiled by contemporary art theorist Graham Coulter-Smith, the publication features four essayistic chapters that contextualise and interpret the Self Portrait Project through psychoanalytic theories of desire and the self.

The monograph includes over 40 pages featuring large plates of the artist’s work, encompassing detailed reproductions of etchings and charcoal drawings, photographs of installed works, and photographic documentation of performances. These plates are stunningly printed in rich colour, with glossy pages throughout.
