Richie Fahey and His Photography

New York City photographer Richie Fahey paints his pictures in a cold water flat, surrounded by his inspiration: a huge collection of paperbacks in 1930-1960s, mold and pulp detective. With the help of a manual fan of post-war oil Coloring Pictures for fun and profit, he learned to transform photos into black and white to glorious color by bubbling with pigments on snapshots of the 40s .

Technicolor-style lobby cards as Fahey mentioned in the houses of old movies, novels and covers portraits dimestore star fan magazines such as screen and Photoplay. In defining his style, Fahey was inspired by pictures in magazine posed detective, director of photography for the 1940’s-50 as John Alton, portrait photographers like George Hurrell, and as painters and illustrators and James Leeteg Avanti.

In creating his images, Fahey plays with the stereotype of black beautiful women that has gone wrong and the men who love them. He is meticulous stylistic detail. Convincing the artistic direction, combined with lighting techniques and hand coloring vintage combine to create attractive, ambiguous works. The inability of the viewer to identify the exact time when a photograph has been taken Fahey, lends a certain timelessness to work from the artist.

Fahey has created book covers for Penguin, Scribner, Warner Books, Vintage, ST. Martin’s Press, Knopf and Simon & Schuster. Other commercial clients include Sony Records, Adobe Theatre Co. and Design Spot. His clients have included Sports Illustrated editorial, GOTHAM, bust, atomic physics and magazines Flatiron. Fahey produced and co-designed the cover for James Bond novels reissued.

Fahey was presented in juxtaposing art review, camera art, Yellow Rat Bastard and GARAGE. His work has been presented to the Robin Rice Gallery in New York’s Greenwich Village and posters of his work are available for purchase online at VintageArte.com. His 2004 calendar pinup, women in crime watch, beautiful women caught secretly commit various crimes fun.

Smoking Room: Lucky Strike Cigarette Vintage Ad

Lucky Strike is a famous brand of American cigarettes, often referred to as “Luckies”. The brand was first introduced by R.A. Patterson of Richmond, Virginia, in 1871 as cut-plug chewing tobacco and later a cigarette. In 1905, the company was acquired by the American Tobacco Company (ATC), and Lucky Strike would later prove to be its answer to R.J. Reynolds’ Camel.

In 1917, the brand started using the slogan “It’s Toasted” to inform consumers about the manufacturing method in which the tobacco is toasted rather than sun-dried, a process touted as making the cigarette’s taste more desirable. The message “L.S.M.F.T.” (“Lucky Strike means fine tobacco”) was introduced on the package in the same year.

Lucky Strike’s association with radio music programs began during the 1920s on NBC. By 1928, the bandleader and vaudeville producer B. A. Rolfe was performing on radio and recording as “B.A. Rolfe and his Lucky Strike Orchestra” for Edison Records. In 1935, ATC began to sponsor Your Hit Parade, featuring North Carolina tobacco auctioneer Lee Aubrey “Speed” Riggs (later, another tobacco auctioneer from Lexington, Kentucky, F.E. Boone, was added).

The weekly radio show’s countdown catapulted the brand’s success, remaining popular for 25 years. The shows capitalized on the tobacco auction theme and each ended with the signature phrase “Sold, American.” The company’s advertising campaigns generally featured a theme that stressed the quality of the tobacco purchased at auction for use in making Lucky Strike cigarettes and claimed that the higher quality tobacco resulted in a cigarette with better flavor. American engaged in a series of advertisements using Hollywood actors as endorsers of Lucky Strike, including testimonials from Douglas Fairbanks concerning the cigarette’s flavor.

Carl Sagan’s Cosmic Timeline

Carl Sagan's Cosmic Timeline

Astrophysicists have deduced the age of the Universe (dated from the Big Bang) to be 13.7 billion years.

Imagine that the entire history of the universe is compressed into one year – with the Big Bang corresponding to the first second of the New Year’s Day, and the present time to the last second of December 31st (midnight).

Using this scale of time, each month would equal a little over a billion years. Here’s a closer look at when important events would occur when we imagine the universe in one year: The Universe in One Year was inspired by the late astronomer, Carl Sagan (1934-1996). Sagan was the first person to explain the history of the universe in one year-as a “Cosmic Calendar”-in his television series, Cosmos.

Within the scheme of the Cosmic Calendar, an average human life of 70-80 years is equivalent to approximately 0.16 cosmic seconds!
