We All Want Something Beautiful

Randall Slavin was born in Hollywood, CA. While working a dead-end job in a gas station, Slavin wandered into a local photography studio & struck up a friendship with the owner. He took the young Slavin under his wing & taught him a few photography basics, then promptly fired him a few months later. Faced with nowhere else to turn, he put one foot in front of the other & never looked back. Slavin had his photography debut in the prestigious New York Times Magazine. His work has appeared in Vanity Fair, GQ, Esquire, Rolling Stone & many others. Slavin had his first exhibit in Paris in 2008 & a solo show at Annenberg Space For Photography in 2011. He received the 2011 Hollywood Style Award for “Photographer of the Year” and is releasing his first book of his photography, WE ALL WANT SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.

Slavin has captured most of the iconic faces of Hollywood from Charlize Theron to Dennis Hopper, Zoe Saldana, Terrance Howard, Ethan Hawke, Eva Longoria, Emma Roberts and so many more.

“In the last year, I’ve really tried to go in a different direction and shoot things that are more interesting to my soul as opposed to just my eyes.”
