Aaron Rose’s Never Before Seen Images of 1961 Coney Island

Coney Island is a natural playground for photographers, especially during New York’s brutal summers. Noisy, fleshy people compete for space on the sand, much like they vie for seats on the subway during the week. This pent up energy is what attracted Aaron Rose to photograph the Coney Island beach-goers in 1961. Shot over three summers when Rose was in his early 20s (Rose is an orphan and unaware of his exact age), these previously unseen photographs capture New Yorkers unaware and uninhibited, basking in Coney Island’s beating sun.
