Slim Aarons: Once Upon A Time
This is how I wish my family portraits looked. Princess Colonna with her son Prosero in their humble home in Rome, photographed in 1960 by Slim Aarons. The iconic photographer of the rich and famous in the 50s, 60s and 70s, Aarons captured in vivid color the Hollywood stars, the polo set, the jetsetters, the queens, the beautiful people. After the violence he witnessed as a combat photographer in WWII¸ he decided that the only beaches he wanted to invade in the future were "decorated with beautiful girls tanning in a tranquil sun"— amply present in this volume. Take a look through. You'll want a better family portrait, too

Flamingo Estate was founded on the idea that to stand on the Earth and sing her praises is one of the most joyful and necessary privileges of being alive.
In a world that profits off our numbness, it is a radical act to wake up one's senses. Champion the slow dive, the deep breath, the bee asleep in the mallow, the drizzle of olive oil on a soft boiled egg. These are the moments that welcome joy.
"Flamingo Estate made it clear we’d found the one."
“Delights the senses and nurtures the soul.”
“A lush hedonistic playground.”
“Bringing Mother Nature into the the home.”
