Beschreibung:

This lavish fourth volume in Abrams' Slim Aarons collection revels in his longtime love affair with Italy. From breathtaking aerials of the Venetian canals and Sicilian countryside to intimate portraits in the villas and estates of celebrities and the beautiful people, Slim's photography captures the essence of the good life of the rich and famous of Italy. Italy undeniably held a special place in Slim's heart. As a photographer for Yank magazine, he witnessed the Italian campaign during World War II and was present at the liberation of Rome. Later, after the war, he abandoned Hollywood to travel to Rome as a photographer for Life magazine. Even after he relocated to New York, he would return to Italy almost every year for the rest of his professional life. His extensive archive documents the aristocracy, high society, celebrity, cultural elite and international jet set that found sanctuary in Italy's most beautiful places. In addition to being his stock and trade, what he called "photographing attractive people who were doing attractive things in attractive places," these images paint the social and cultural geography of fifty year of Italy, from the Liberation of Rome to the 1990s. The introduction by Christopher Sweet will portray the close friendship between Slim Aarons and Robert Capa that began in Italy, as well as compelling evidence supporting the claim that Slim was the real life photographer on which Jimmy Stewart's character in Hitchock's Rear Window is based.
In a host of memorable portraits, across a vast geography of resorts, estates, palaces, elegant apartments, mansions, castles, and other glamorous settings, Slim Aarons's photos define that legendary class known as the "beautiful people." 250 color photos.
This lavish fourth volume in Abrams' Slim Aarons collection revels in this photographer's decades-long love affair with Italy. From breathtaking aerials of the Sicilian countryside to intimate portraits of celebrities and high society taken in magnificent villas, Slim Aarons: La Dolce Vita captures the essence of "the good life." Slim Aarons first visited Italy as a combat photographer during World War II and later moved to Rome to shoot for Life magazine, yet even after relocating to New York, he would return to Italy almost every year for the rest of his life. The images collected here document the aristocracy, cultural elite, and beautiful people, such as Marcello Mastroianni, Ursula Andress, Joan Fontaine, and Tyrone Power, who lived la dolce vita in Italy's most fabulous places during the last 50 years. The introduction by Christopher Sweet shares stories from Aarons's years in Italy and new insights about his life and career.
