An enchanting photograph by photographer Slim Aarons. This Lambda print was created after the original image.
Slim Aarons described his photographs of the 1950s, 60s, and 70s as documenting “attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” As a postwar photographer who had earned a Purple Heart in combat, Aarons perfected the environmental portrait. His subjects were society swans, European aristocracy, and Hollywood royalty in beautiful hideaways like Palm Beach and Sardinia. Aarons's photographs evoke a bygone era of style and graceful serenity.
