After Hours

BySusan Rivers

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
After Hours is a celebration of Bradford J. Smith’s (1925 – 2016) vintage photography. Brad was a photographer for over 75 years. During his long and varied career he amassed a multitude of stunning photographs. However none were more compelling than his work as a fashion photographer in NYC in the ‘40s and ‘50s. By day, fashion photos for Harper’s Bazaar. By night, nude portraits of aspiring actresses. Among his after hours models was a young "Betty" Bacall. Sadly, that is a photo you won’t see in the book as it was bought back by enraged husband Humphrey Bogart. According to John A. Staszyn, Appraisers Association of America, “The photographs by Bradford Smith contain many of the same qualities of the Conde Nast photographers. The composition, lighting, posing and quality of the prints reflect the positive, creative and alluring aspects of some of Conde Nast’s best known photographers such as: Horst, Cecil Beaton, Edward Stiechen, Frances McLaughlin-Gill and more.”
