Slim Aarons
'Chalet Costi, Zermatt, Switzerland, ' Estate Edition

1968

About the Item

This vibrant snowscape by Slim Aarons depicts skiers outside the Chalet Costi in Zermatt, 1968. The skier on the left wears white pants and a crisp red jacket, and the skier on the left wears vibrant orange. Vintage skis lean against the warm wood entrance, and two drinks with festive lemon wedges are set on the table for apres-ski. Behind the chalet rises a snowy mountain peak. A classic winter scene from an iconic midcentury photographer. Chromogenic Lambda print Slim Aarons Estate Edition of 150 Embossed and hand-numbered with two certificates of authority Printed Later 6 sizes available Over the course of a career lasting half a century, Slim Aarons (1916-2006) portrayed high society, aristocracy, authors, artists, business icons, the celebrated and their milieu. In doing so, he captured a golden age of wealth, privilege, beauty and leisure that occurred alongside—but quite separate from—the cultural and political backdrop of the second half of the Twentieth Century. The Slim Aarons Estate has released the limited Estate edition as a Lambda print, which is a modern c-type print. They have chosen Lambda prints for their sharpness, clarity, colour saturation and quality, compared to archival inkjet prints. Lambda printing gives a true continuous tone. Photograph is unframed. Slideshow includes a close-up of the Slim Aarons estate's stamp. Collector will get the next number in the edition. Slim Aarons was born and raised in New York City and New Jersey and later New Hampshire. He took up photography as a teenager. At the age of eighteen, he enlisted in the U. S. Army and was later appointed official photographer at the United States Military Academy at West Point. During World War II he served as an army combat photographer for Yank magazine in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East. After the war he became a freelance photojournalist, first based in Hollywood, then Rome, then New York. His photographs appeared in many magazines, including Life, Holiday, Town & Country, Look, Venture, and Travel & Leisure. His first book A Wonderful Time (1974) is considered a classic.
