I really have a thing for the architecture, design and overall look of mid-century modern living. I’m a sucker for that sleek, ultra-insular home of the Space Age generation, and my boom-a-rang table still holds a place of honor in my home.
Nadine Boughton is a Massachusetts-based photographer and collage artist who really turns that retro look on its ear. Boughton says that she is attracted to “the tension of opposites” and exploring “what lies beneath appearances,” and by marrying men’s adventure magazines with Better Home and Gardens, her work exposes the dark, if preposterous, underbelly of Camelot.
So ring-a-ding-ding, daddios and chickie-babies. Pour yourself a cocktail and lounge back in your plush red sofa — and don’t be surprised if you’re attacked by bats or mauled by wild gibbons.
