ALBUMS | Photography

In the seventies, Kenneth Aronson designed album covers collaborating with legendary rock n roll producer Delaney Bramlett in Los Angeles.
and producer writer Shel Silverstein in Nashville, including on the historic Grammy winning album Chester & Lester, with Chet Atkins and Les Paul
The cover designed as a tongue-in-cheek homage to nashville style features the two icons in their socks, because Aronson asked them to remove
their shoes to avoid marking the white floor of his studiio, and the test shot documented this historic meeting of the worlds most famous "pickers"

 
Soft Sculpture as Fashion

Aronson designed soft sculpture sold as Haute couture in the mid-seventies. Originally sold at Donald Pliner's RBCC in Beverly Hills, Aronson's
velvet bananas, icre cream cones, strawberries were worn by Cher and Margeaux Hemmingway as purses. Elton John wore chrome mylar and
gold lame versions of the banana's as ties on stage. Aronson made a special computerized ice cream cone sculpture tie for Elton John's 1976
fourth of July BiCentenniel Concert Performance in Boston.
