The original early 20th century Metropolitan Magazine seemingly had many vibrant and fanciful covers, running for a number of years, and was a great venue for Pogany and Armstrong. The image on the header of this 'blog was originally one of its covers. But I've yet to see more than just a few collected here and there. Another coffee table book waiting to happen.

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.
