This is the follow-up Sunday to the last post. These two Sundays were sort of stand-alones in the middle of a long arc, of which I will post sometime soon.
The quality of the press runs at this time were somewhat spotty (literally), so I'm spending a bit more time than usual trying to get the cleanest scans I can. In my opinion, this era marks the beginning of the decline of quality that newspapers suffered, lasting to this day—40 years later.
My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, as I don't limit myself in the process of how an image is made. Images are my life.
I AM POSTING THESE IMAGES WITH THE NOTION THAT I AM DOING SO WITH A NON-PROFIT AND EDUCATIONAL 'FAIR USE' MOTIVE, REGARDING RESPECTIVE COPYRIGHTS. ANYONE DOWNLOADING AND USING THESE IMAGES FOR ANY COMMERCIAL USE WOULD BE IN VIOLATION OF RESPECTIVE COPYRIGHTS, AND DOES NOT HAVE MY APPROVAL FOR SUCH USE. PLEASE SHARE IN EDUCATION AND DON'T TRY TO MAKE MONEY FROM IT WITHOUT PROPER AUTHORITY.
