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 in 2019 saw the release of his first coffee table book WE ALL WANT SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL.
