Figurative art photography

This figurative art photography combines pinup with nude portraiture. Two women stand nude with two machines for dispensing sources of energy. A vintage coke machine and a gas pump are separated by a span of a couple of feet.

A nude figure stands with her back to the viewer. Her head is turned to show part of her face, which gazes in the direction of a second nude figure, standing sideways to us, braced between both machines.

Hues of orange, rose, and cool blue-grays dominate the background.

A faded glass globe proclaims Phillips 66 Bengal Green Gasoline, atop the Tokheim Flite-Fuel gas pump. The adjacent Coke machine bears the distinctive red and white colors, although the logo is hidden.
