One of two colour pigment prints published by Phaidon alongside a monograph for the artist’s major solo exhibition, Only Human, at the National Portrait Gallery, London, in 2019. This photograph was taken at the Kentucky Derby, the most famous horse race in the US. Parr has long been fascinated by the races. He says this was one of those serendipitous moments worth waiting for – he waited and waited until this picture revealed itself and knew immediately he had a winning photograph here. Each print is presented in a bespoke box containing both the print and Parr’s Only Human catalogue, which are signed and numbered by the artist.
