May 15 – August 30: In “Life’s a Beach,” one of Britain’s most beloved photographers takes us on a color-saturated journey through a place loved by all, the seaside. Martin Parr has been photographing this subject for many decades, creating images that range from close-ups of sunbathers to rambunctious swimmers caught mid-plunge. Intrigued by the general absurdities and local quirks of beach-going, Parr has photographed beaches across the world. This exhibition presents photos of beachgoers on far-flung shores, including Argentina, Brazil, China, Spain, Italy, Latvia, Japan, the United States, Mexico, Thailand, and, of course, the artist’s native England.
