Photo: Mad men, fab girl
13-Sep-10 (Left) Marina City provides the timely location for this entry by a Chicago photographer in a contest promoting the television show Mad Men.
Leilani Wertens, a graduate student of photography at Columbia College in Chicago, is trying to win a walk-on role on the Emmy-winning series set in 1960. Sponsored by American Movie Channel and Banana Republic, the contest, Mad Men Casting Call, asks fans to submit original photos that have the best Mad Men style.
More than 4,000 entries have been received and voting continues on an AMC website through September 17.
The photo appears to be a self-portrait, taken from the plaza at 330 North Wabash. Wertens could not be reached for elaboration.
