Beautiful Vintage Color Photos of People at Central Park in the 1940s

Slim Aarons was an American photographer best known for portraying the glamour of high society, aristocracy, artists, and celebrities. In World War II he served as a military photographer and later earned a Purple Heart. “Photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places” was what he called to describe his career. He never required any stylists or makeup artists on set, solely focusing on the natural charisma of his subjects.
