When my friend Cari moved to the East Coast last year I was fortunate enough to acquire a hefty stack of vintage fashion magazines from her. I pulled the May, 1970 issue of Harper’s Bazaar and began photographing the pages to share here on the blog. Unfortunately, very few pages were printed in color, and not long into the process I physically could not resist the temptation to recolor these black and white images, Aaryn West style. I made sure to keep my colors off-registration, as a nod to 1970s printing quality. What do you think? Canyadigit?
