    Robert Joseph Photography Studio in Portland, OR took inspiration from a vintage deck of 1950's playing cards to recreate the set in modern times. The shoot was an amazing experience filled with wonderfully talented and beautiful people. Cards are available for sale at https://www.facebook.com/robspdxstudio/app_410312912374011 squareup.com/market/robert-joseph-photography/pinup-playing-card-pre-sale Video Shot by Ryan Fruge' and Karney Hatch Edited by Ryan Fruge' Via Robert Joseph Photography… The Pinup Playing Card Project Robert Joseph - Photographer & Creative Director Candi Rose - Hair Stylist Willow Joseph - Makeup Artist David Gaona - Production Assistant & Post Processing Artist Carmen Green - Photographers Assistant Ryan Fruge & Karney Hatch - Videography This story and this project is about beauty and it is about women. It is about men and it is about what we teach our girls and what we teach our boys. It is about the road we have traveled and about the distance we still have to travel together. This story is about sex and the uninhibited beauty of the human form. In September of 2013, my lovely wife, Willow, bought me this simple deck of vintage pinup playing cards from 1953. She bought them for no reason… just because she thought I would enjoy them. She knows that I love vintage nudity. It doesn't necessarily sexually excite me as much as it creates meaningful thoughts about life in the days of that vintage nudity. It thrills me that some people laugh at the face of taboo and break new ground for those that come after them. These cards were definitely no exception. I stared at the cards often. I invented names and lives for each of the models. I estimated their ages at the time of the shoot and calculated how old they would be now (all of them at least in their 80’s now). I tried to get in their heads and I wondered if in their later years they were to look back at the day that they modeled for these cards if they looked back with pride or with shame. I hoped pride but I assumed shame. But why shame, I wondered. What about what these women did in these photographs would produce any kind of shame? Throughout human history, art has consisted of and celebrated the beautiful female form. But this was different… this wasn't was no Picaso hiring a model to pose nude for a painting. This was a hack photographer. The photos are absolutely terrible. The lighting is uneven. The models are cut off randomly. Strange props were used throughout. This was no artist that shot these photographs. This was a guy with a camera. The sum of which is, to me, the deliciousness, the cheesiness, the hilarity, and beauty of these cards. And so the project to recreate these cards was born… because 61 years later we continue to applaud men who enjoy sex for pleasure while deriding women as “sluts” and “whores” who do the same. We teach our girls to cover their bodies so that they might protect themselves from being raped. We teach them how not to invite rape, but we rarely teach our little boys that “no” has no other meaning. We excuse rape by exclaiming “She was asking for it!”. Our society sexualizes and then shames women for that sexuality that we impose on them. Companies like Hobby Lobby fight for and win the right to deny birth control to their employees because their religion says that women who enjoy sex for reasons other than procreation are whores and heathens. All of this nurtures a culture of rape or at least a culture of servitude. I chose women to be a part of this project of every body type and of many ages. We have 22 year old beautiful women and we have 46 year old beautiful women. We have beautiful little women and we have beautiful larger women. We have A cups and E cups… all of them feminine and beautiful. We had amazing women with little butts and big butts and beautiful women with no tattoos and bodies covered in tattoos. I encouraged every one of these models to own their bodies. I pushed them to do their best to faithfully recreate these cards (with perhaps a few more attention to details) while standing tall and proud in their skin and to wholly own their sexuality, and to pose without the shame that I assume the models did in 1953. And so before you is that art… I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

          Moderated by Angie Bradbury, Chair of the Wine Communicators of Australia, a panel selected by Wine Australia focused on the role that social media and traditional communication plays in the development of wine as a beverage of choice and the Australian category in particular. The session considered how social media can be used to engage different audiences, whether they are supply chain participants, trade, customers or consumers, and how to engage successfully with various audiences. Kristen Boschma, General Manager, The Social Hatch explored the role of both social media and traditional media in engaging customers and consumers. Kristen was joined by Ray Isle, Executive Wine Editor, Food and Wine Magazine; Robert Joseph, Editor-at-Large, Meininger Verlag; Dave McIntyre, Wine Columnist, The Washington Post and Leslie Sbrocco from USA's Today Show, who provided insights on the appropriate media channels to improve a brand’s dialogue within various target audiences and to help change brand perceptions, particularly in mature markets and channels. The panel also discussed the transition from traditional media to modern media and explore how the story of premium Australian wine can be told using social media channels, while also navigating the difficulties of communicating complexity and nuanced brand stories in a fast-paced 24-hour ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ global news cycle.
