Magnum Make-up Bag - Plinth

Martin Parr, ‘chronicler of our age’ and Magnum Photographer, has worked with Plinth to create beautiful, useful objects imbued with his trademark wry wit. “There’s humour in the world!”, explains Parr. “It’s no surprise to find humour in photographs, taken the crazy place we all live in”. With that in mind, we invite you to breakfast on breakfast, set your mug of tea on top of another, and keep your lipstick safely inside a make-uppy smile; from placemats to trays, and from wash bags to coasters, Parr’s answer to ‘image meets object’ will appeal to photophiles and design lovers alike. The range has already been featured in publications including The Guardian, Elle, Le Figaro, The Observer, Die Zeit and Man Repeller amongst many others. The image on this make up bag comes from Zurich, Switzerland, 1997 and is part of Parr's series 'Common Sense.'

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of Magnum Photos, Plinth partnered with Magnum to create its first ever range of unique products using some of their most iconic images.
