Photographer Slim Aarons had incredible access to everyone who mattered. 

From the end of World War II through to the 1980s, Aarons photographed the rich and famous, the beautiful and the celebrated: Hollywood royalty, European aristocracy, the grande dames of high society, captains of industry, media moguls, statesmen and stars of every sort.

These were the days before publicists, managers and hangers on tried to restrict time with the rich and famous, sanitizing the whole process. Meanwhile Slim Aarons saw himself as a photo journalist, charged with informing and recording the lives of the privileged.

This book of photographs, introduced by social observer, Frank Zachary is a wonderful record of its time with the sort of work that has inspired generations of photo journalists, who can only dream about having the kind of access that Slim Aarons enjoyed.

  • Published by Abrams.
  • Hardback.
  • 240 Pages.
  • 250 Colour illustrations.
  • Introduction by social observer, Frank Zachary.
  • Essential for any students of photo journalism.
