Slim Aarons: Women Book Signing by Author Laura Hawk
February 24, 2017 | 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm |
Join Grace Home Furnishings to celebrate author Laura Hawk, author of the recently released book Slim Aarons: Women. Laura worked with Slim Aarons on the road and on magazine and book projects for two decades, and shares stories from this period with insights on the man behind the lens.
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.
This program is presented in conjunction with the “Afternoon of Slim Aarons” events on February 23, including a presentation of the book, conversation with Nelda Linsk, film screening and cocktail reception.
