Glamorous Vacations of the Beautiful and Fabulous

Legendary photographer Slim Aarons spent years shooting the rich and beautiful at play.

Slim Aarons chased the high life. A combat photographer in World War II, Aarons moved to California after the war ended — and immediately embedded with socialites and stars. He shot them where they lived, worked, partied, and relaxed.
