Opening Reception for Life’s a Beach  by Martin Parr
Wednesday, May 15, 2013, 7:00-9:00 pm

“Join Aperture and Martin Parr for the opening reception for Life’s a Beach, featuring the best selections from Parr’s beach photography, presented in conjunction with the May release of the beach-bag-size edition of Life’s a Beach. Parr has been photographing beaches for thirty years, documenting all aspects of them, including close-ups of sunbathers, rambunctious swimmers caught mid-plunge, and the eternal sandy picnic underway. This selection brings to the fore Parr’s engagement with a cherished subject matter—that rare public space in which general absurdities and local quirks seamlessly fuse together.”
