Slim Aarons

Increasingly heralded for his influence, Slim Aarons established his place in the Pantheon of great postwar photographers. It was Aarons who perfected, if not invented, the environmental portrait while photographing the international elite in their exclusive playgrounds during the jet-set decades of the '50s, '60s and the '70s, carrying out his self-described mission: to document "attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places."
Slim Aarons died May 29th, 2006.
