Exclusive Life’s a Beach Pre-release Event with Martin Parr

Monday, October 15

6:00 pm

Aperture Gallery and Bookstore 547 West 27th Street New York, NY


Join us for an exclusive event with Martin Parr and be one of the first to own a copy of his soon-to-be released deluxe limited-edition publication Life’s a Beach. Your ticket purchase gains you access to a special artist salon with Parr and an intimate reception to celebrate the book. Each guest will receive a pre-signed and numbered copy of this limited-edition which Parr will sign again at the reception. This event is the only chance to get a copy of Life’s a Beach at this special pre-publication price of $150. Price will increase as edition sells through.

This ultra-collectible publication brings to the forefront Parr’s engagement with a cherished subject. Parr has been photographing at the seaside for many decades. Featuring close-ups of sunbathers, rambunctious swimmers caught in mid-plunge, and the eternal sandy picnic, this compilation presents photos of beachgoers on far-flung shores. American photographers may have given birth to street photography, but according to Martin Parr, “In the UK, we have the beach!” Each copy of this signed and numbered limited-edition is presented in a slipcase and features ninety-six four-color images inserted into die-cut slots to resemble a photo album.

Tickets are limited to seventy-five. You must be present to receive a pre-release copy of Life’s a Beach.
