Summer Lovin’
Jun 7 – Aug 18, 2023
Robert Mann Gallery
New York, USA

Lounging by the pool, the roar of ocean waves, blue skies, and a romance: summer is the season that could live on forever. Summer Lovin’, the latest exhibition at Robert Mann Gallery, showcases a selection of intimate moments and faded memories gone with the tide.

Step onto the beach with Joe Deal’s Laguna Beach, California (1978) or catch a volleyball on the hot sand in John Mack’s Cancun, Quintana, Roo, Mexico, (2008). Spend a night out at the carnival captured by Jeff Brouws with flashing lights and a thrill: Ice Cream Booth, Ventura, California (1988) and Magenta Midway, Ventura, California (1990).

Float down the river with the return of Julie Blackmon’s Flatboat (2022) or shake your head at the neighborhood kids running wild in the backyard, Flag Cake (2015).

Curated by gallery director, Caroline Wall, Summer Lovin’ intertwines serene landscapes with unsuspecting sun bathers, free-fall divers and drying swimsuits. Anything goes in summer as the photographs sing to the tune of love off the walls. Enjoy an eclectic collection of subtle sensuality and play, of vacations and dog days.

The selection features the work of: Julie Blackmon, Jeff Brouws, Harry Callahan, Joe Deal, Larry Fink, Richard Finkelstein, Elijah Gowin, Cig Harvey, Chip Hooper, Michael Kenna, O. Winston Link, Mike Mandel, Ed Sievers, and Henry Wessel.
