We let the 'pictures do the talking' with a small poster for each video.  Video posters are organized in 'six pack' slide show displays - with video posters rotating automatically until you click one of the small thumbnail images above the poster window.  Then you manually move thru that poster display by clicking on the small thumbnail images above the poster window.

 

NB:  if you only see one poster, then that is either the home page single poster/preview or your web browser does not support the poster slide show routine.  Update your browser software to the latest version or install the free Firefox web browser (recommended).

 

Use the big arrow at the top right corner of the screen to browse through poster display pages.

 

Click the "Add to Cart" button to buy. Scroll to the bottom of the order form (not the screen page) to click "Submit Order". When the PayPal transaction is complete you will get an email with your download link.

NB: if the order form does not pop up over your browser screen soon after clicking the 'Add to Cart' button, then re-start your device and try again or update your web browser to the latest version or install the free Firefox web browser (recommended).

 

NB: on some mobile devices or if you have zoomed/magnified the browser display you may not see all the page, poster window or 'Add to Cart' button.  Change your browser view preferences to default or use finger gestures to shrink the browser on smaller devices.

 

Women Smoking Culture is the portal for one of the world's longest running popular culture documentaries, a ModelsUpClose production since 1997.  All our content is General Exhibition, typical of what you see on day time TV and in public across the world.

 

Cigarette smoking is a controversial issue and smoking means different things to different people. Some love it, some hate it and some love to hate it, which explains the enduring popularity of Women Smoking Culture website. This documentary series has been inspired in part by the curious enigma of women smoking and in part by these publications on smoking: "Smoke: A Global History of Smoking" and "Cigarettes Are Sublime" and "Seductive Smoke"

 

Women Smoking Culture is a website and documentary series of and for people who have chosen to accept the well documented risks associated with smoking, indeed who often flaunt this danger for their personal enjoyment but this does not imply that it is an activity others should follow. This publication is not intended to be in anyway comprehensive, promotional or educational.

 

This publication presents a collection of visual imagery on smoking in society, as typically seen in public in today's western society. The views recorded and discussed are simply a representation of the personal activity of the participants at the time of recording.

 

Our website and publications also use stock content licensed from Evanto, iStock, VideoBlocks  and others as detailed in the relevant video shows.

 

Our video documentaries use musical works licensed from AVP,  Evanto, Digital Juice Library, Shockwave, VideoBlocks, ccMixter, Daniel Johns as detailed in various video episodes.
