Slim Aarons
Slim Aarons 'Kennedy and Friends'

1953

About the Item

1953: Senator John F. Kennedy (1917 - 1963), Shirley Rogan Ellis and Betty LoSavio at Montego Bay Airport, Jamaica. Estate stamped and hand numbered edition of 150 with certificate of authenticity from the estate. Slim Aarons (1916-2006) worked mainly for society publications photographing "attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places." Taking pictures of the rich and famous both before and after serving as a photographer for the US military magazine Yank during World War II. His work has been included in the publications Town and Country, Holiday, Venture, LIFE and most well known for his photograph Poolside Glamour. Closely aligned with Robert Capa and Henri Cartier-Bresson, Aarons declined to join them in the founding of Magnum, leaving behind the world of black and white for sun-dazed glamour and frivolity. His intimate portrayals of the in crowd and jet set are rich in the wit and charisma that afforded Aarons such incomparable access to the highest of societies. Print is available in 20 x 16", 20 x 20", 30 x 30", and 40 x 40 inch sizes.
 IFAC is proud to represent Aarons' vast collection of negatives and transparencies in collaboration with Getty Images, which span six decades of a lifestyle many dream of but few experience. Expert darkroom work on the original negatives and transparencies allow us to print his images up to the largest photographic sizes, inviting us to step into these dazzling images of the good life.

  • Lizard Prunus X-Ray Photography on Dibond Lambda Print Still Life Nature
    Located in Utrecht, NL
    Lizard Prunus X-Ray Photography on Dibond Lambda Print Still Life Nature - Perspex Front UV Resistant The photography of Arie van ’t Riet is a merger of his scientific background, being an engineer and physicist, and his passion and love for flora and fauna. His focus is on the essence of nature. This process takes a sense of beauty, but also technical knowledge and insight.

For this work van ’t Riet received a special permit. Because he is specialised in working with this equipment he is able to make a picture in just one take. This is complicated because, for example, a thin leaf needs another approach than a fat...
