A Place in the Sun

Cape Town has been blessed with a few summery and hot days recently, although I am normally a cold weather person, the sunny weather was a welcome change from the freezing wet weather we’d been having.

So, with summer in mind I thought it was fitting to introduce you to the work of George Allen Aarons, better known as Slim Aarons. He was an American photographer known for his sun soaked images of rich socialites and celebrities on holiday during the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.

  1. Gorgeous photos and well curated on your end! I’m in London and my family is in Durban, and I’m always so jealous looking at their temperatures. Enjoy it!
