CONEY ISLAND—An exhibition of New York-native Aaron Rose's photography showcasing "remarkably intimate" portraits of New York City beach-goers in the early 1960's will open on Friday, May 8 at the Museum of the City of New York. "Rose's photographs capture the vibrant and diverse mix of races, ethnicities, genders, and body types that create the city of New York: a literal 'sun-baked melting pot.'" says Ronay Menschel Director of MCNY Susan Henshaw Jones. In a World of Their Own: Coney Island Photographs by Aaron Rose, 1961-1963 will display 70 formerly unseen photographs, and will be on view until August 3. [CurbedWire inbox; official]
