On Saturday, May 18, Aperture presented an all-day portrait shoot and beach party with the one and only Martin Parr, in conjunction with the release of the beach-bag-size edition of his monograph Life’s a Beach and the related exhibition at Aperture Gallery. Aperture patrons and the public joined us to have beach-themed portraits snapped by Parr, accompanied by friends, family, and even cherished pets. Click through the slideshow above to see a selection of highlights from the event.

This event was made possible with support from Canon U.S.A., Inc., Gosling’s Rum, and Mondrian Soho. Music by Milo McBride. Event photography by Sophie Finkelstein.
