Smitten with Slim

“Photographing beautiful people in beautiful places doing beautiful things.”  ~ Slim Aarons, on his (priveleged) profession.

Pretty people, poolside, in their Pulitzer and Pucci…

I’m a smitten kitten for Slim Aarons, and his portrayal of the lifestyles of the wealthy and well-heeled jetsetters of the ’50s and ’60s through his magical lens. With warmer weather promised this week, my mind is drifting off to dreamier locations à la Slim. Here are some of my favorites…
