Anti-smoking Found Ads
Searching for some inspiration in some old magazines piled up in an art studio, I stumbled on these ads. They shocked me because I couldn't get past the irony. Since they gave me a sick feeling, I felt they might be useful to make my protest. I couldn't get them out of my head. I've watched many loved ones struggle with this addiction and felt powerless to help them at times. I found it so interesting that these ads seem like foreboding warnings.

The Capri ad is changed slightly with the addition of the graveyard background, deathly smoke, and the 'fact' at the bottom. The disturbing slogan at the top is untouched.

The Kent ad is altered by one word, DEATH. "The experience you seek" slogan was also already there, which I found creepy with the faded figures. Smoking even killed their dog!

I hope you enjoy the irony in these ads as much as I do and also make a stand to make the right choice. In 2004, I used Photoshop to alter these. If you would like to see more health related work in a different media, please see "The Choice Between".

Slowly but surely, with the right awareness, education, and choices, we can stop this insanity.
