Images captured by photographer Martin Parr

The work of a world-famous photographer, who captured images from last year's Tynwald Day and Manx National Week, is set to go on display at the end of this month.

Martin Parr, who's been described as 'one of the best-known documentary photographers of his generation', was invited to take the pictures in 2023 by Isle of Man Post Office.

Eight have been chosen to feature on a stamp collection which will be released in time 5 July this year.

Others have been selected to go on display at the Manx Museum which curator Katie King says will be a big, bold depiction of how the Island marks its celebrations:

The exhibition will open on 29 June and run until 6 October.
