There are many reasons to attend this year, yet we're especially proud that the British photographer and Phaidon artist, Martin Parr, has put together one of the fair's headline exhibitions. Open Book is a show of photo books organised around the theme of political protest, a subject that Parr also explores in our forthcoming title, Photobook Vol III. Visitors can also hear Martin and his co-author Jerry Badger discuss this exhibition and their series at Friday at 2pm, as part of the of the fair's talks and conversations strand, Platform.
