15th March - 9th June 2014
In a nod to spring's imminent arrival, Getty Images Gallery will showcase a selection of images from maverick American photographer Slim Aarons in its latest exhibition Slim's Riviera, opening in March. Known for his work with high-society publications, this latest Slim Aarons exhibition portrays the luxury and frivolity of a generation at play. The collection includes previously unpublished work, showcasing the iconic playgrounds of the rich and famous in all their glory.
Slim's Riviera, developed from a total re-edit of original boxes of transparencies and negatives, is a selection of 49 lesser known and classic works from this iconic American photographer.
Louise Garczewska, Director, Getty Images Gallery, says, "We are thrilled to introduce Slim's Riviera, our stunning new exhibition, showcasing a truly unique take on the Riviera at a time when both European and American high-society were making it their home away from home. Through Getty Images' Hulton Archive, we are delighted to be able to make this rare and stunning collection of images available to the public.
