Martin Parr to pass his collection to a British institution?

The Art Newspaper reports that British photographer Martin Parr is in talks with Nicholas Serota of the Tate Gallery and the Victoria and Albert Museum to leave his collection of historic and contemporary British photographs to the nation. Neither institution would confirm the story. Parr claims he is not looking to make a profit on any deal.

Over the over the last twenty years Parr has assembled an important survey of 700 British documentary photos and book dummies. This includes the work of around 18 practitioners, many of them collected in depth, which spans the last five decades.
