This is another one that I found in the 4×5’s. The two people I do not know, but I am guessing the are NY models as they have shown up a few times in very Ad like images and footage.
I find this image brilliant as he cut the wood, she waits and watches him with a smoke.
This reminds me of something that Ken would have done for Empire in Gloucester. Though I do not know what these images were used for. Though very likely for a an Ad.
Regretfully there is a bunch of 4×5 negatives that have been distorted due to heat damage years ago. As I work out ways to see these wonderful images I came across this wonderful series of Tuna Fishing. My guess is these were used for an ad, but who knows.
Ken work as an artist for Chesterfield Cigarettes for many years. Here are four of the ads that he had worked on. These are from his McCall’s Magazine proof stack.
My guess is this is one of the bull pens that Ken worked in or maybe me watching 5 seasons on Madmen is impacting my view.
Nonetheless, it is a wonderful image.
This is photo of Oscar Nelson and the Ad concept that it went to for GMAC. It reminds me of the days of rube masks for photo silos.
Does this look like a man that you would buy a car from?
