Prepare yourself to die from pretty overload. Are you ready? Here it comes… with these absolutely EXQUISITE black and white photos from the set of Mad Men by photographer James Minchin III. Are they blowing your mind? They’re blowing mine. I love how candid they are capturing the quickest and most fleeting moments in time. I love seeing behind the scenes shots in general – be it outtakes from interior shoots, or backstage photos from fashion week – and these ones taken during those in-between moments of filming are equally as thrilling to me. There’s something strangely magical and captivating to me about seeing the little “x” tape marks for an actor or a prop during the take, or a rack of perfectly crisp white dress shirts, or a cropped view of the lovely January Jones waiting for her scene.
Are you on the Mad Men train? I’ve only recently hopped on, but it’s instantly become one of the shows I most look forward to each week. It’s one of those shows that’s so honest and fearless, and that’s what I love about it. It’s very real. And I love how that’s captured in this set of photos.
P.S. You can see a whole bunch more photos – there’s a tonne more! – and at full size, over here. Well worth your while.
