Photograph: Aaron Rose
In a World of Their Own
Stop scrolling through your friends’ beach pics on Instagram and direct your attention to a photographic ode to sand and sea that’s a little more incisive. As one of the first art photographers to use C-print paper and chromogenic processing, Aaron Rose was fascinated by the summer skin tones of 1961, capturing beachgoers in all their midriff-baring glory. Revealing its subjects at their most unguarded, the collection is a testament to Rose’s fly-on-the-wall prowess, as well as a snapshot of the cultural moment. Through Aug 3.
