George Allen Aarons, known as Slim Aarons, was born on October 29, 1916 in Manhattan, New York. Slim Aarons is an American photographer known for his photographs of the jet set in the 50s and 60s, but it is known that he began his career as a photographer at the Westpoint Military Academy after enlisting in the U.S. Army at age 18. War reporter during the Second World War, he then moved to California and devoted himself to the representation of glamorous and idealized Hollywood celebrities in paradisiacal places. Decomplexed and united, this elite lives at full speed, making a clean sweep of a society shattered by the horrors of the past war.
Slim Aarons is a photographer of genius who manages, better than anyone else in this art, to immortalize these moments of social life without pretense, which will earn him acceptance without difficulty in the highest social spheres of the world. Slim Aarons' fame was not long in coming and his pictures, of a rare finesse and a disconcerting naturalness, testify to his love for high society. As an inveterate perfectionist, the artist finds in this environment this refined allure perfectly innate, in harmony with his artistic constancy. Slim Aarons unveils, in his art photographs, an ode to an elitism, illustrating a chimera of ultimate beauty of a society considered inaccessible. Slim Aarons died in Montrose (New York) on May 29, 2006.
