Description
Designer

Increasingly heralded for his influence, Slim Aarons has 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 70s, carrying out his self-described mission: to document "attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places." This luxurious book is the ultimate insider's view of the lifestyles of the wealthy, privileged, and powerful.

Published December 1, 2003. Hardcover.

Measurements: 10" L x 12" H
