Presenting Martin Parr's Strange Paradise
The Harts Gallery | July 2 - Aug 27
Parr first garnered attention in the mid-80s with his series and book, The Last Resort:Photographs of New Brighton, documenting leisure seekers at a seaside town in the United Kingdom. It is with the subject matter of these images, along with his use of saturated color, that Parr begins to lead the viewer down a road where seemingly meaningless everyday moments become a source of irony, absurdity, obsessive attention, grotesque detail and even magic.

On Legendary Photographer
Recently published in Crave Magazine, Miss Rosen writes — "Sherman has made it her life’s work to create a body of photographs in which she becomes a diverse array of societal archetypes almost exclusively available to white women in modern life. Working alone in her studio, Sherman becomes the mastermind of her enterprise, acting as author, director, make-up artist, hair stylist, wardrobe mistress, model, and photographer—all with one goal in mind: the creation of an image that transcends our assumptions about the feminine."
