True Adventures in Better Homes

True Adventures in Better Homes by Nadine Broughton combines men’s pulp fiction magazine artwork with photographs from vintage interiors magazines.

“When I recently discovered men’s adventure magazines of the 1950’s and early 1960’s at a flea market, I found them shocking, funny, ambiguously rich artifacts of popular culture. Seeing them as narratives from the collective psyche, I wondered how they would speak in an environment of orderly homes with sunny patios depicted in women’s magazines of the same era. This portfolio reveals a collision of two worlds: men’s adventure magazines or “sweats” meets Better Homes and Gardens.”
