Slim Aarons's photographs offer a glimpse into the lives of the American jet-set in the post-war era. Aarons photographed the rich and beautiful in palatial Malibu mansions, at society events, and on lush European beaches, winning the trust of celebrities and capturing the likes of Gary Cooper, Mick Jagger, and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis in private moments. His oeuvre evokes the glamour and grace of midcentury America, depicting what he often said were “attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” Aarons stopped working in the years leading up to his death, as he was displeased with the trends of magazine journalism that emerged in the 1990s and 2000s. His body of work represents an essential and iconic time-capsule of a bygone era.
