Saturday, May 18th 9:00 am–6:00 pm Aperture Gallery and Bookstore 547 West 27th Street, 4th Floor New York
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. This is a rare opportunity to have your portrait taken by Mr. Parr; join us to have your picture snapped or to pose with friends, family, or even your cherished pets.
Parr will shoot beach-themed portraits throughout the day in a temporary studio space at Aperture Gallery. Feel free to bring your own props or favorite objects, or 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.
