As you know Ange and I absolutely love Slim Aarons photographs. I was just reminissing about how we came to fall in love with them…. We were down in Mornington a few years ago on a girls weekend and walked into a store and Desert House Party was hanging on the wall. I found Ange standing in front of it trying to find the words for her excitement when I saw it I instinctively knew why she was screaming with excitement! The colours, the fashions, the achitecture and the characters….it just draws you in. I don’t know how many times since we’ve looked at Desert House Party, Poolside Gossip and others in this particular series and wondered what conversations they were having... the fact that they were friends with the rat pack of Hollywood - just makes it all more intriguing!
One of the other things that makes Slim's photos so interesting is all the amazing locations around the world they are taken and the stories behind the rich and famous people featured in the photos. So many stories to tell. No wonder Slim was so well loved in the world of the rich, famous, royalty and socialites of this era.
We thought we'd compile a list of some of our favorite photographs, all are available to purchase though our online store. If you want more information on any of them please feel free to get in touch with us.
