  • UK Magazine/Newspaper Mystery Picture

    I remember reading the Weekend Mag/Papers as a teen and remember this picture which I cannot find, I don't know what the ad's context (if it was a Ad) was about, but the image has left me wanting to find it if nothing more to show my mind otherwise.
    Picture it
    The illustration was realistic comic like, a couple are in bed, middle age maybe?, him in pyjamas, wearing glasses, she might have been wearing glasses as well, I think she was reading a book, he had his arm resting his head.
    However in their shared dream cloud, they are in a fantasy (or thinking of a happier time), she is kneeling on the bed wearing a corset, with fishnets and heels, he is wearing a black crop top like t shirt covering his chest, his six pack is on display and leather? trousers with two zips on his crotch, one hand closer to the zip. Both had smiles.
    I remember the woman had wavy blonde hair and big red lips.
    The man had balding hair which was black on the sides.
    I can't remember what paper or mag it came from, but it was a typical tabloid paper or mag.
    I know it's out of the normal for what you look for, but understand, it's still an remainder of a past when Page 3 or The Rocky Horror Picture Show's bedroom scenes passed over my head.

        Knowing the period this advert was print it was the same time there was a lot more adult based adverts in papers also I managed to sketch a rough drawing of it that's how strong the advert engraved on my mind.

          I think I saw it too, only as an acrylic print on the website that sells custom photos frame online. I think it was like an example of how a photo would look in a frame or something. I think that during the time they printed it was directed more towards adults. One thing that I weirdly remember is that the woman had black hair. Who knows, maybe it's the Mandela Effect! If you don't know what it is, I could kind of summarize an explanation. Well, it's like a false memory, and it happens when someone recalls something that did not happen or recalls it differently from the way it actually happened.

                Well hopefully it might have been captured on the wayback machine, also thanks for the Mandela Effect explanation I did know what it was and it's fair to say I have seen a few of those in my life

                  Did The Sun have a regular magazine supplement (apart from the TV guides on Saturdays from the early 1990s onwards)?

                    I remember it was in the Weekend Magazines like the TV Guides and Sunday Magazine I had a great uncle that use to read those papers and we would get them afterwards if we didn't like the person on the front cover we use to black their teeth out.

                      Sunday magazine was with the News of the World, so not quite the Sun newspaper back then. Used to love looking at the "Funday" comic strips and jokes towards the end of the magazine, especially when I was having the Sunday dinner in the other room - strips such as such as Donald Duck, The Lockhorns; Robot Ron (Tom Johnston); Smalltalk by Roger, and others.

                      And then in 1988 the Sunday Mirror launched their magazine, monthly at first in order to test the market, and then weekly, and they had Mickey Mouse as well. The Funday Times of course was just like the Beano or the Dandy being an actual comic supplement out of The Sunday Times.

                        I know I just Googled it, I might have gotten it confused with Daily Mirror, I just looked on their old mags and may have a lead. They use to have The Look magazine which if I remember was A4 and possible it might be in there. Makes me wish I had torn it out before it was junked.

                              Paul Hansen is one of the most famous photojournalists in the world. For me, he is an example of the reporter's work of a photographer. Seven times he became the best photographer in Sweden, twice-the winner of the prestigious photo contest POYi ("International Photo of the Year"). One day I want to reach his level of skill and in the meantime I am engaged in commercial photography. By the way, I used to have problems with finding locations, but now I can easily find them with aperfectspace.com
