Retail Fictions
by Ralph Bartholomew Jr.
Publisher's Description
From the media's days of innocence, comes this collection of carefully crafted, unintentionally campy, and--occassionally--just plain cheesy advertising images. As potent icons, meant to be as obvious as possible, his photographs from the 30s, 40s, and 50s have come to represent the "golden era of American consumerism." Bartholomew produced these photographs for Eastman Kodak, Playtex, and other national companies and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art has brought them back for its exhibition Retail Fictions.
