Slim Aarons Christmas Swim, C-Type Print Rita Aarons swimming in a pool festooned with floating baubles and a decorated Christmas tree, Hollywood, California, 1954
C-Print. Slim Aarons is an American photographer known for capturing (in his own words) ‘attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.’ However, life wasn’t always cocktails in exotic locations for Aarons. The photographer began his career photographing soldiers in combat during World War II, for which he received a Purple Heart.
After the war, Aarons set his sights on capturing the lifestyle of the rich and famous. By winning the trust of his subjects, he was able to shoot some of the most intimate and candid portraiture of the 20th century.
Slim Aarons Christmas Swim was taken in Hollywood in 1954, and depicts Slim Aaron’s wife, Rita, swimming in a pool decorated with a Christmas tree and baubles.

The C-Type photography print is available in a range of sizes, and is part of an open edition, stamped by the publisher.
