The Playboy Mansion From a Different Perspective

The words “Playboy Mansion” conjure up very specific images for most people: flawless bodies, an older gentleman in a burgundy smoking jacket, exotic birds, lush grounds and the infamous grotto. Photographer Jeff Minton visited the iconic home last year (after it sold for $100 million) and while there are a few snaps of bikini-clad women, his images are not what one would expect. Minton’s images show a worn-out and kitsch place; its overarching characteristics being entirely peculiar. He says, “The property is nearly 100 years old and it shows its wear in many ways. I guess I just wanted to celebrate the mansion in all of its tattered glory.” See more at It’s Nice That.
