Martin Parr - What would you save in a flood?

The photographer Martin Parr has teamed up with Oxfam to take portraits of celebrities with the one item they would save if their home were flooded.

The series of shots follow a trip Martin Parr took with Oxfam in 2009 to flood-hit Quang Tri province in Vietnam. Here he photographed people who were struggling to cope with increasingly unpredictable flooding owing to climate change. Parr asked them to pose with the possession they battled to save when their homes were unexpectedly hit.
