Life’s a Beach

Middlebury College Museum of Art, Johnson Gallery

Magnum photographer Martin Parr is renowned for capturing people in their own private comfort zones and introducing them, in all their quirky eccentricity, to a global audience. This extensive series of photographs shot on beaches around the world offers an engaging and vivid social commentary about the vast variety of human behavior that can be found anywhere under the sun. This exhibition is organized by the Aperture Foundation, New York. At Middlebury, it is supported by funds from the Christian A. Johnson Memorial Foundation. Free
