Aperture presents 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.


Parr will set up a temporary studio space at Aperture Gallery and will shoot beach-themed portraits throughout the day. Feel free to bring your own props or favorite objects or to have fun with the beach toys on hand. While you’re waiting for your close-up, sip Dark n’ Stormy® cocktails, provided by Gosling's Rum, while you view the Life's a Beach exhibition.


Limited to ninety-six portrait slots, each commission guarantees you one personal 8 x 12 inch portrait taken and signed by Martin Parr. Studio time will be scheduled in the order of booking, and you should arrive at least fifteen minutes prior to your slot. On the day of the shoot you may purchase additional images from your session or upgrade to larger prints at additional cost. The signed original photographs will be available for pickup at Aperture Gallery beginning Tuesday, May 21, or can be shipped directly to you for an additional charge. Purchase is non-refundable.


The Life’s a Beach exhibition and beach party are free and open to the public. Registration is not required.


This event is made possible with support from Canon U.S.A., Inc., Gosling’s Rum, and Mondrian Soho.
