Welcome to the glamorous world of Slim Aarons, courtesy of the Getty Images Gallery, one of the greatest resources of original photography in the world.
Welcome to the glamorous world of Slim Aarons, photographer, and creator, of the idolised. Slim has had a career we can only dream of. His work dates right back to the army publication Yank, during the Second World War. Cutting his teeth as a correspondent for Life, then Harper’s Bazaar and Town & Country after the war, Slim soon found his way into the places that mattered; from Marilyn Monroe’s dressing room to Henry Cabot Lodge’s sailboat and Babe Paley’s pool party.
Aarons’ style is instantly recognisable and his images are known worldwide. His celebrity work exhibits the sense of a very private view of the lives of his subjects, and owes much to his ability to gain the trust of the individuals he photographed. Portraits include many of the leading personalities in American show business and politics, as well as images which depict the 20th Century way of life in America.
The collection we’ve curated concentrates on the utopian days of the 60s through to the 80s. Slim’s ‘good life’ covers the richest people, places and events in Europe and America, with subjects who are wealthy in terms of possession or birth. As with every great photographer, behind each series of pictures is a great story.
