Slim Aarons: богатые и знаменитые

Слим Ааронс был не просто придворным летописцем высшего общества 1950-70-х годов, пресловутого Jet Set, хорошо воспитанным парвеню, чьи фотографии никогда и никому не доставили беспокойства. И не только гениальным конформистом, так формулировавшим свой символ веры: "Фотографировать привлекательных людей, делающих привлекательные вещи в привлекательных местах". Он был поэтом богатства, трубадуром хороших манер. Его фотографии знаменитостей нетрудно перепутать с рекламными снимками. Только из подписи можно узнать: это не анонимный натурщик рекламирует надувные матрасы, а актер Питер Селлерс нежится в Палм-Бич. Не смазливая модель демонстрирует выдержанную в розовых тонах спаленку, а Джоан Коллинз позирует с любимым розовым пудельком. Не анонимные повесы наслаждаются коктейлем, а Кларк Гейбл, Ван Хефлин и Джеймс Стюарт хохочут над анекдотом, который рассказал им Гари Купер, на легендарном снимке "Короли Голливуда" (1957). Но в этом гламурном китче есть пугающее величие, тоталитарная уверенность, что жизнь такова, только такова, другой не может и не должна быть. Сравнить Ааронса можно, пожалуй, с рисовальщиком Норманом Рокуэллом, тоже поднявшим на пьедестал и доведшим до абсурда жизнь провинциальной Америки.

NEW YORK PICNIC BY SLIM AARON
NEW YORK PICNIC


Текст: Михаил Трофименков
Эту почти религиозную светскость еврейского мальчика из Нью-Гемпшира объясняют тем, что он был аутсайдером, боготворившим богатство: такой комплекс преклонения перед богатыми и всемогущими описал Скотт Фицджеральд в романе "Ночь нежна". Ааронс действительно нахлебался жизни сполна, прежде чем стал самим собой. В 18 лет ушел в армию, где дослужился до хроникера и шофера газеты Yank. Прошел мировую войну, был несколько раз ранен, заслужил орден "Пурпурное сердце". Именно войне он обязан тем, что стал любимым автором Vogue, Harper`s Bazaar, Life, Holiday, Travel and Leisure. Во время летних 1944-го года боев за Рим Ааронс спас жизнь Карлу Мейденсу, знаменитому фотографу Life. Каким-то шестым чувством поняв, что внешне безопасная дорога заминирована, Ааронс свернул свой джип на обочину и остановил машину, в которой ехал Мейденс.

Стоит ли удивляться тому, что, когда в 1950 году Ааронсу предложили освещать высадку американского десанта в Корее, фотограф ответил: "Меня интересуют только те пляжи, на которых загорают девушки". Когда Кеннеди или Монро снимали великие фотографы, в их работах можно, и это не преувеличение, найти тень будущей трагедии. Снимки Ааронса непроницаемо безоблачны: это тоже своего рода величие, уверенность в непогрешимости своего взгляда.
Он не пытался приоткрыть внутренний мир своих героев, не приглашал зрителя задуматься над превратностью судьбы. Трудно себе даже представить на его фотографии голливудскую звезду без «голливудской улыбки». «Они всегда приглашали меня на свои вечеринки, потому что знали: мои фотографии не принесут им неприятностей», — рассказывал Ааронс в одном из интервью.

Совокупность его фотографий можно назвать "семейным портретом в интерьере". Его герои -- "семья" удачников, оккупировавших, как в фильме Висконти, все пространство мировой культуры. Он любил уравновешенные, симметричные композиции: звезды позируют на фоне римских палаццо, античного храма Посейдона или копий классических образцов в собственных флоридских или калифорнийских поместьях. Символ победы над историей -- Луи Армстронг на мотоцикле, похмельным утром 1 января 1949 года трубящий в трубу на фоне Колизея.

Только в одном Ааронс дал слабину, только в пристрастии к одному персонажу изменил своей благостной ноте. Из года в год, следуя за ним, куда бы его ни забросил рок, он фотографировал Чарльза "Счастливчика" Лучано, гангстера, создавшего пресловутый Синдикат, принимавший заказы на убийства. И эта привязанность Ааронса к человеку, поднявшемуся, как и он сам, к вершинам успеха, неважно, какой ценой, была не менее, если не более, искренна, чем преклонение перед Генри Фондой или Пегги Гуггенхайм.

Charles Luciano by Slim Aarons
Sicilian-born American gangster Charles Luciano (1897 - 1962) relaxes in exile from the FBI. His criminal empire included narcotics-peddling, prostitution, extortion and running vice dens. Whilst in prison from 1936 to 1946 he founded the Crime Syndicate of Mafia families and reorganized crime. (1949).

img_saarons_bio.jpg
SICILY, 1949 -- Mafia boss Charles 'Lucky ' Luciano (1897-1962) (left) with society photographer Slim Aarons while Luciano was in exile in Sicily.

Сам Ааронс считал себя фотожурналистом: «Я не фотограф, я журналист с фотоаппаратом», — говорил он. И в каком-то смысле это действительно так: он никогда не работал в студии, не прибегал к услугам стилистов и гримеров, не использовал искусственного освещения, за редким исключением его герои не позируют. Ведь действительно нигде не написано, что фотожурналист обязан снимать голодных детей и разрушенные войной города — почему бы ему не фотографировать «привлекательных людей в привлекательных местах»? Но все же фотографии Слима Ааронса менее всего напоминают работу фотожурналиста — как отмечал один из рецензентов иногда трудно поверить, что на его работах сняты реальные «звезды», а не позирующие модели. Его «реальный мир» богатства, славы и процветания нереален — но, несмотря на это (а скорее благодаря этому), красив и притягателен.

Джордж Аллен Ааронс, известный под прозвищем Слим, что значит "утонченный" или "стройный", скончался в своем доме в Монтрозе, штат Нью-Йорк, 31 мая 2006 года в возрасте 89 лет.
