Magnum photographer Martin Parr has selected my ‘Chelford car boot’ photograph from We English as his ‘Picture of the Year’ in an article published in today’s Sunday Telegraph.

Parr writes: “This image from Simon Roberts’s book We English is a modern classic. Roberts toured the country looking for view of leisure activities. By taking up an elevated position, all elements of the classic car boot are revealed, from the container and inflatable racetrack in the background to the layers of people and cars in the front. This sort of domestic recycling is a relatively recent phenomena, but it’s now an essential part of modern life.”
