Book Synopsis



Slim Aarons: Women explores the central subject of the renowned photographer's career--the extraordinary women from the upper echelons of high society, the arts, fashion, and Hollywood.

"Page after page reveals an unreal world. . . . Socialites in their mansions, film stars by their pools. . . . Aarons earned the trust of the very rich--Jackie Kennedy, Princess Grace of Monaco, Imelda Marcos--and the very famous--Cary Grant, Marilyn Monroe, Errol Flynn--as well as a passing parade of young women at play on yachts, at exclusive beach resorts, or in their expensive homes." --The Guardian

This book presents the women who most influenced Aarons's life and work--and the other remarkable personalities he photographed along the way--including Audrey Hepburn, the Duchess of Windsor, Diana Vreeland, Esther Williams, Marianne Faithful, and Marlene Dietrich, all featured in unforgettable photographs. The collection contains more than 250 images, the majority of which have not appeared in previous books, along with detailed captions written by one of Aarons's closest colleagues, Laura Hawk.

Hawk writes in her introduction, "Slim's visual narratives give us an intimate glimpse into the world of the upper classes and their rituals in the pursuit of leisure. That his half century of work continues to captivate successive generations of admirers--and that this is the fifth book published of his photography--reveals not only a yearning for an irretrievable time gone by but also a universal fascination with the seeming forbidden worlds of wealth and privilege."

Showcasing beautiful women at their most glamorous in some of the most dazzling locations across the globe, Slim Aarons: Women is a fresh look at the acclaimed photographer through the muses who inspired his most incredible photographs.
