The set of AMC’s “Mad Men” is the focus of a stunning series of black-and-white, behind-the-scenes photos that surfaced last week. LA-based photographer James Minchin III captured the set, the props, along with candid images of the actors, both on and off the set. The work is truly fascinating in the way it connects the past with the present. The creators do such a remarkable and convincing job with the show that when confronted with the truth here in black and white, it seems almost surreal. More photos are available on Minchin’s website.
