In his epitaph to the age of conspicuous consumption and wealth, Luxury features Martin Parr's photographs from five years of watching the rich and fabulous at international champagne-fuelled gatherings. In a series that manages to be both satirical and warmly affectionate towards air-kissing luxury-victims, Parrs subjects include parties, horse races and notable luxury events including the Millionaires Fair,Moscow, the Dubai Art Fair and the Art Basel Miami.

Designed with an appropriately luxurious silver-foiled padded leatherette cover and introduced with an argument for a new morality by leading British fashion designer Sir Paul Smith, Luxury is the powerful statement about the era before the bubble burst.
