by Alex Majoli
This past winter Time Magazine sent Alex Majoli to photograph the production of the first half of the 7th and final season of the critically acclaimed TV series, Mad Men.
The show's plot focuses on the operations of a 1960's advertising agency and the lives of its employees during the span of that tumultuous decade.
Since it's premiere in 2007, Mad Men has won fifteen Emmy Awards, four Golden Globes and in 2013 TV Guide ranked it sixth in its ranking of the sixty best programs. It's also been nominated for three 2014 Emmy Awards, which be announced the evening of August 25th.
The first half of the final season ran in the Spring of 2014 and the second half will premier in the Spring of 2015.
