SLIM AARONS: ONCE UPON A TIME by Slim Aarons
This is how I wish my family portraits looked. Princess Colonna with her son Prosero in their humble home in Rome, photographed in 1960 by Slim Aarons. The iconic photographer of the rich and famous in the 50s, 60s and 70s, Aarons captured in vivid color the Hollywood stars, the polo set, the jetsetters, the queens, the beautiful people. After the violence he witnessed as a combat photographer in WWII¸ he decided that the only beaches he wanted to invade in the future were "decorated with beautiful girls tanning in a tranquil sun"— amply present in this volume. Take a look through. You'll want a better family portrait, too.
