Poolside Gossip by Slim Aarons

I couldn't be happier to hear that one of my favorite NYC galleries, Hamburg Kennedy Photographs, has just opened a summer salon in Southampton. Located on Jobs Lane,  the summer gallery has an impressive collection of works by artists such as Massimo Vitali, Hiroshi Sugimoto, Bert Stern, Andy Warhol, David LaChapelle and Peter Beard, among many others.  While the summer salon features an impressive collection of major art works for sale, I was delighted to find an extensive selection of photographs suitable for my more modest budget. Owner Marla Kennedy's vast experience combined with her warm and vibrant personality instantly put this neophyte collector at ease. I'm smitten with Slim Aaron's Poolside Gossip and Massimo Vitali's Italian seaside photographs, a delicious taste of La Dolce Vita, Southampton Style. The salon officially opens this weekend-stop by if you can!
