Slim Aarons created 21st century “cool”. His photos are timeless and most importantly, they’re real. All of my favorite photographers bring this element into their style and its something I strive to bring into mine. Below are 10 of my favorite pieces. I honestly could look at his photographs all day. Enjoy.
