Once again I'm in deadline crunch phase. I'll post here and there some individual images that have been scanned and waiting, but I won't have time for much explanation.
Here, a poster by one of the grand masters of art nouveau, following in the immediate wake of Mucha's upswell of technique, Henri Privat-Livemont. This image was created in 1896, for publication in 1897. Very majestic.

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, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
