Hello all, todays post is from an article that I’ve had bookmarked/saved for ages. It’s from the New York Times and is a series of photographs dated from 2016 back to the 1940’s.
The site isn’t allowing me to copy the photo’s, so links will have to do it.
These photo’s caught my interest for several reasons. Of course they were all beautifully photographed by the most prestigious photographers in the world. The other reason is that the most iconic celebrities of their respective generations are represented here.
The actor Sean Connery wearing wide-wale corduroys and a checked jacket on the April 1, 1966, cover of GQ.
The manner in which advertisement was portraid in it’s earlier years is interesting to me when comparing it to today. Somewhat different manner of presentation back then. In my mind it feels as if if were gentler and not so “in your face” Meaning it didn’t scream “buy Me!” like advertisement does these days. That said I do love the picture in the link below.
“Alabama, 2015” heading toward Birmingham, Ala., on a small highway leaving the Smoky Mountains, published in Condé Nast Traveler, June/July 2016 issue.
Here is a beauty from 1950
Painters at work in a photograph for House & Garden, published on March 1, 1950.
That takes me to my favorite aspect of this article. which is the feeling of the progression of the era’s from 1940 to the present.
