"Captures magnificently the life of America's elite from coast to coast, in Bermuda, the Caribbean, and Acapulco...Drawing from thousands of pictures taken since World War II on assignments for Holiday, Town & Country, Harper's Bazaar, Life, Vogue, Travel & Leisure--many never published before--with a narrative of is experiences and impressions while photographing American aristocrats on their estates and at play at their favorite resorts."--from the jacket copy

Aarons "perfected, if not invented, the environmental portrait while photographing the international elite in their exclusive playgrounds during the jet-set decades of the 50s, 60s, and 70s, carrying out his self-described mission: to document 'attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.'" Aarons died in 2006. In his PDN obituary Daryl Lang wrote, "The world of Aarons's photographs, where wealthy people lounge poolside, looking effortlessly beautiful, became an iconic look often mimicked in advertising."
