Bathers round a pool in Sotogrande, Spain, August 1975.

Коллекция снимков за авторством Слима Ааронса, которого в шутку можно было бы обозвать 'фотографом бассейнов', ведь именно это место он счёл своей избранной съемочной площадкой, всерьез же его называют не иначе как фотографом красивой жизни.
Однако пляжные зонтики в колоссальном количестве, прозрачная вода и густой солнечный свет, непременно заполняющий всю площадь кадра, отнюдь не главные на этом празднике лета и беспечного времяпровождения.
С первого взгляда сложно понять откуда взялись все эти люди на фотографиях, кажущиеся то ли моделями из каталога Ральфа Лорена, то ли героями яркой и наивной живописи Хокни, ясно одно - где-то мы их уже видели. Так и есть, Ааронс за свою продолжительную карьеру посетил бессчетное количество загородных владений первосортных господ, подтянутых и загорелых наследниц всего и вся, голубокровых аристократов, кинозвезд, писателей наконец. Все эти громкие звания непременно бросающиеся в глаза наблюдающего обывателя, с легкой руки фотографа заставляют скорее не завистливо сокрушатся о разнообразных несправедливостях в социальной иерархии, а внезапно почувствовать теплый соленый ветерок в лицо, шуршание мелких ракушек под ногами и остальные необходимые атрибуты всей этой дольче виты знакомой отчасти каждому.
