2013 Southeast Emmy Award Nominee (Cultural Documentary).
Southeast Emmy nominated Hot Spots: Martin Parr in the American South, is a thirty minute documentary short that examines the photography of Magnum's most controversial and prolific member as he gathers images for his first commission by a major American art museum, the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
From the first click at the Cactus Car Wash to the unusual travel tip offered to Martin at the Atlanta Steeple Chase six months later. Psychobillys, tailgate partiers, roller derby teams, art collectors and gamblers...Martin Parr's energy and x-ray vision burn through Atlanta like a modern day William Hogarth's.
The film features interviews with Susan Meiselas, Philip Gefter, John Gossage and Julian Cox. Hot Spots shows us Martin Parr at his most outrageous. Hot Spots was broadcast on Georgia Public broadcasting
