From baptisms to beach getaways, the water's edge is a site for transformations. With this threshold as its inspiration, Robert Mann Gallery's summer exhibition At the Water's Edge includes both historical and contemporary images engaged with those recurrent summer traditions of flocking to the water, either manmade or natural, for a much needed respite. It is no wonder then that the shoreline and the swimming pool have provided numerous photographers with inspiration.
