I don't know if these images were ever used in public service advertisements for anti-smoking campaigns, but they might well have served this purpose.
However, even if you put aside this potential social benefit, these images are pretty cool, regardless of the intent. I love the surrealism!
As book covers, movie posters, billboard ads, or even coffeehouse auction items, any one of these pictures could be well-suited.
I had found these images on www.linkinn.com but unfortunately could not find any artist or photographer info.
