Slim Aarons

"I used natural lighting. If it was good enough for Rembrandt, it was good enough for me."
S.A.

Slim Aarons became an army photographer at 18, during WW II.
After the war, he decided he wanted to turn his camera away from misery and be photographing “attractive people, who were doing attractive things in attractive places”.
So he started capturing the dolce vita of the jet setting High Society of the 1960's and 70's.

These stories, the vibrance, the optimism…all the 'bull' (as Slim called it himself) are still like taking a refreshing dip into the pool of a fantasy world.

Thanks for showing us a wonderful time, Slim.
