Los Angeles-based photographer James Minchin III has revealed an exciting series of images that capture the set, props and candid moments of Emmy-award winning drama Mad Men behind the scenes. The stunning black and white images create a jarring juxtaposition between the 1960s set and costume designs and the cast's own technological gadgets, exemplified in the shot of Jon Hamm checking his iPhone.

The details on the Los Angeles set of the AMC hit series are delightful for the Mad Men enthusiast, with crates of Lucky Strike and Ecstacy cigarettes and pinboard collages of photographs of real 1960s-era women near the makeup station for inspiration. Additionally, the awesome window into the Mad Men set includes some charming shots of the characters preparing to shoot and of costumers preparing the luxurious sixties attire.
