Published on the occasion of the exhibition The Rhubarb Triangle & Other Stories: Photographs by Martin Parr at The Hepworth Wakefield.  This publication documents The Rhubarb Triangle, a new commission of a series of photographs taken over the last 12 months in an area of countryside known as ‘The Rhubarb Triangle’ in West Yorkshire, which is famous for producing early-forced rhubarb.

Parr’s photographs capture all aspects of the rhubarb business, from the back-breaking work of moving the rhubarb from field to shed, the freezing cold and exhausting labour of picking the vegetable by candlelight (or occasionally by head-torch), and the consumption of the rhubarb by coach parties and food tourists.  With a Director’s foreword by Simon Wallis and an essay by Susie Parr which provides a fascinating insight into The Rhubarb Triangle.
