Slim Aarons

I was first turned onto Slim Aarons at a party thrown by Kate Spade at Fred Segal in LA a number of years ago and his photos totally captured my attention (and imagination.)  Aarons' camera captured "attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places."  These people included royals, hollywood stars, jet-setters and socialites.  Here is a brief (or as brief as I could make it, there is so much to love) introduction to some of my favorite of Aaron's images.  Photographers Gallery in LA carries the Slim Aarons catalog, so click over to their site and get lost in Aarons' beautiful jet-set world or pick up an image to hang on the wall of your own fabulous abode.  Aarons also has several books to display on your coffee table including: Slim Aarons: Once Upon a Time and Slim Aarons: A Place in the Sun.
