In conjunction with the May release of the beach-bag-size edition of Life's a Beach, Aperture is pleased to present an exhibition featuring the best selections from Martin Parr's beach photography.
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 of photographs shows Parr at his best, startling us with moments of captured absurdity and immersing us in rituals and traditions associated with beach life the world over.
Opening reception: Wednesday, May 15, 7:00-9:00 pm
Portrait Shoot and Beach Party with Martin Parr: Saturday, May 18, 9:00 am-6:00 pm
