Aperture Photography Gallery
Aperture Foundation’s beautiful gallery and bookstore presents exhibitions dedicated to contemporary and classic photography. Located in the heart of Chelsea, New York City – admission is free. Hours and location are here.
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.
Jason Evans’s photographs circulate in many worlds, from fashion magazines and websites to record covers and museums, and he’s often interested in subverting the conventions of the genres and venues in which he works. Such is the case with this portfolio of seventeen images, which is the first such series Evans has created for photography collectors.
