Slevin Aaron calls himself ‘a photographer of emotions’. To capture a feeling or an emotion through the camera is a fundamental part of his expressive poetics, something which does not only express the immediateness of a certain moment, but that it is also a faithful representation of life itself. In this picture, the beholder is struck by the overwhelming cheerfulness that characterises the two brothers, who are portrayed in a moment of light-hearted happiness.
Slevin Aaron approached photography as a self-learner and later attended the Academy of Arts (Poland). In 2013, his photography series Secret Garden was awarded the first prize at the Hair Photography Contest Tosor. In the same year, he participated in the photo contest WUP (Poland), and since 2014 he has been pursuing his artistic career in both Poland and Italy. In Italy, his work has been exhibited for the first time at Martini, in Milan, on occasion of the launch of the Vogue Fashion Night Out, and then featured in An Iconic View of White, staged at Porsche Design Boutique. In Italy, he also participated in Hair Extravagance, a show staged at Palazzo Re Enzo (Bologna) and organised by Vogue, and in Around Lemon, in Rome. In addition to featuring in these major art exhibitions, Slevin Aaron’s shots have been also used to illustrate the cover of books published by major companies such as Random House, HarperCollins and Macmillan Publishers, as well as theatre posters and album covers. In the last two years, some of his shots have been selected by Alessia Glaviano, senior photo editor at Vogue Italia, for some shows. In 2015, Slevin Aaron has exhibited in three different Polish cities, and also participated in 45 Frames From PhotoVogue, staged at the Leica Gallery, Milan.
