Iconic and instantly evocative, Slim Aarons’ photographs offer an escape into a world of elegance, luxury and glamour. Born in New Hampshire, USA, the one-time war photographer decided to revel instead in the hedonistic enclaves of the world capturing heiresses in Palm Beach, stars of the silver screen in Hollywood and European aristocrats in Capri. His pictures are postcards from paradise: no images better conjure the glorious feeling of a summer holiday.
Dive into the world of Slim Aarons with this beautifully illustrated book Poolside with Slim Aarons – it also makes a great present.
