Are you familiar with photographer slim aarons? if you are, then you already know how he perfectly captured the jet setters of the 50s and 60s! if not, you’re in for a treat. his subjects ranged from pucci-clad italian princesses to waspy american socialites. his photos have this amazing combination of day-in-the-life and other-worldliness. of course his “day in the life” isn’t anything like my days, let me tell you! as slim said himself, he photographed “attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” his style is often imitated, but he was one of the first photographers who didn’t take stiff, formal portraits opting to photograph people in their natural habitat. their very fabulous and glamorous natural habitat. let’s pack our bags, and tag along for a day in the sun!
i like to think of myself as a holidaymaker.
