Slim Aarons: Women, the Making of the Book and the Stories Behind It

February 23, 2017 | 3:00 pm - 3:45 pm |


Join author Laura Hawk with longtime collaborator Eric Rachlis in a conversation about the recently released book Slim Aarons: Women. Laura Hawk worked with Slim Aarons on the road and on magazine and book projects for two decades. Eric Rachlis, of Getty Images, worked with Slim for close to a decade developing book projects, creating fine art prints and other business affairs. Together, Laura and Eric will lead a discussion of the stories behind the book’s creation and what it was like working with the renowned photographer. Q&A and a book signing will follow the presentation.

Slim Aarons: Women explores the central subject of Slim Aarons’s career, the extraordinary women from the upper echelons of high society, the arts, fashion and Hollywood. The book presents the women who most influenced Aarons’s life and work and the other remarkable personalities he photographed along the way, including Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy, Diana Vreeland and Marilyn Monroe, all featured in unforgettable photographs. The collection contains more than 200 images, the majority of which have not appeared in previous books, along with detailed captions written by one of Aarons’s closest colleagues. Showcasing beautiful women at their most glamorous in some of the most dazzling locations across the globe, Slim Aarons: Women is a fresh look at the acclaimed photographer through the muses who inspired his most incredible photographs.

Note, this program is followed by “Beyond Poolside Gossip with The High Life: Slim Aarons” scheduled for 4:15pm-6:30pm with optional reception to follow.
