Ryan Kirby submits Slim Aarons
In the life of beautiful people there could possibly be beautiful settings with little beautiful things on the side. I have no idea what they are but I certainly know they are beautiful and attractive. American photographer Slim Aarons started out as a combat photographer, but eventually went from shooting war to shooting celebrities. He made every effort to portray the rich and famous as glamorous as possible as opposed to today’s photographers who try to catch them in bad moments. All of his photos are full of color and feel as rich as the people they portray. I would at first want to say his photos show the excess of the rich, but I soon realized that the photos themselves were surprisingly bare.
