Dust off the January blues and step into our glamorous gallery for our Slim Aarons Poolside party!

About this Event

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of Slim Aaron’s iconic photograph, ‘Poolside Gossip’ we will be serving up classy cocktails with a collection of fabulous photographs by the legendary Slim Aarons.

Widely recognised as the master of modern photography, Slim Aarons is famous for capturing attractive people, doing attractive things, in attractive places. Visiting exotic locations from Beverly Hills to the French Riviera, he photographed the likes of the Kennedy family, Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe, Grace Kelly, as well as other elite jetsetters. Aarons worked without stylists or elaborate lighting, preferring to photograph people in their own clothes and surroundings.

His style has heavily influenced both the advertising and fashion industries to sell an aspirational lifestyle and has earned Aarons a celebrity following including designers Tom Ford and Paul Smith.

As well as a collection of classic Slim Aarons favourites, we will be showcasing some rare stamped editions, signed editions and Perspex pieces for the first time in the gallery. Special guest, Matthew Butson, Vice President of the Getty Images Archive which have been the official home of the Slim Aarons Collection for over 20 years, will also be presenting a talk on the artist.

Drinks on arrival and DJ Eggs Leggs bringing his mix of irresistible afro grooves and tropical paradise party tunes to raise the roof and bring in the sunshine! Previous venues include Glastonbury's Shangri-La, Bestival, Croatia's Stop Making Sense and the Concorde2, Brighton.
