   In the 1940s Pin-up and glamour were most often expressed in drawings or paintings. Originally displayed as “nose art’ on American WWII bomber and fighter aircraft, the men’s magazines,  Playboy and Esquire taught generations of young impressionable men about this venerable and beautiful art form by featuring the works of the masters,  Alberto Vargas, Arnold Armitage, and Olivia De Berardinis on their pages for decades, and others, even to present day.

   Its a delightful challenge to express the arts of glamour and pin-up photographically. I doubt photographers will ever surpass the works of the masters, but it sure is fun trying!
