Postcards From a Summer Wanted (Courtesy of Slim Aarons)

You may have noticed in the last few months that we added Sonic Additions, the world-leading photographic print dealer that has access to the estates of some of the most esteemed photographs of yesteryear, to our arsenal of brands. If you haven’t had a chance to explore our hand-picked curation, please do as there are some fine snaps of our 007 heroes Sean Connery and Roger Moore.

Now, we’re all in the same boat when it comes to what has just been a questionable summer holiday period. In fact, it’s generous even to coin it that, for it simply wasn’t one as something got in the way...

It’s for that reason that we’ve just launched some of Slim Aarons’ finest works to make you all feel better about it. Why? Well, simply put: they’re transportive acts of genius creativity. They conjure up kindred emotions of decades past that were unapologetic in their quest for true glamour and sophistication. If anyone summered well, it was Aarons (and his subjects, of course), and if any photographer has the power from the grave to lift our collective spirits then it’s certainly him.

From his snapshots at Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc in Antibes to Hotel St. Caterina on the Amalfi Coast and every other idyllic watering hole in Europe and beyond, if his postcards can remove you just for a split second from the present then the great man’s work has certainly transcended time.

We hope you enjoy them just as much as we are currently but we also hope that you aren’t having issues with hanging space at home.
