The Life and Times of J. Pierrepont Finch

Shepherd Mead’s handbook was satirizing a very specific time and place: New York City in the 1960s. Life Magazine has a vivid archive of photographs from the period, depicting the men and women of corporate metropolis at work and play, at home, at the office, and everywhere in between. Although ‘How to Succeed’ twists these people and places into an overt satire, looking at the world from which they were inspired provides some evocative and stunning windows into the world of JP Finch.
