Jorie Butler Kent by Slim Aarons 1982

This Slim Aarons photograph of Jorie Butler Kent has been popping up frequently, well maybe it's just me going through some books and magazines, but it's in Susanna Salk's A Privileged Life: Celebrating Wasp Style ($27), Slim Aarons' A Place in the Sun ($48), and Domino Magazine used it as an inspirational photo for an Equestrian Chic round-up. I love Slim Aarons' work and particularly this photo. The car, the dog, the polo, did I mention the car? Jorie Kent Butler is one of Chicago's most notable women as she is the daughter of the founders of Oak Brook, Illinois, co-owner of the modern luxury safari company Abercrombie & Kent, noted conservationist, polo player and photographer—in fact her photos have graced the pages of Fortune and Vogue. Many of Aarons' sumptuous photographs can be purchased right here with a range in price from $275-$3300.
