I used to work for Neil Leinwohl, a creative director/art director at Korey Kay in New York. In the ensuing years, I have discovered that he is far more than an advertising art director. He served in Vietnam with the 34th and 79th Engineers and was a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne at Fort Bragg. He is also an artist, and a photographer. This guy grew up in the Brooklyn and Long Island; later deployed to Vietnam and saw hard bloody combat. Then he came back and worked diligently in an ad agency on 5th Avenue for decades. And now he nurtures a sense of beauty. It just shows you the real horror of war is that you have no idea what someone has in them. The people who perish on a battlefield might be musicians, fathers, brothers, craftsmen, authors …or artists. Here is some of his work. Even the photos he took when he was young and in uniform have a wonderful feel for composition. I love the photo of a little girl in Vietnam drinking an American soda. Ah, irony. If you friend him on Facebook, and he replies, you might get to see his work.
