Aarons color saturated images defined an era and document the exclusive world of the international elite originally taken for the pages of Harper’s Bazaar, Town & Country, Life, and his first book, A Wonderful Time which he released in 1974. 
Like many of his contemporaries he did not pursue a fine art career and lived quietly at his home in New Bedford New York after retirement until he was rediscovered by the collector and philanthropist Mark Getty in 1997. There was an immediate nostalgic revival in his work, and began once again set trends across the worlds of photography, fashion, design. Aarons continues to influence and define contemporary art today.
