Looking for Julio and Marisol photos

Post by roysmith » Sat Feb 17, 2018 10:30 am

I'm researching the Julio and Marisol series of ads (http://secondavenuesagas.com/2012/09/06 ... d-marisol/) that ran in the subways during the 1990's. I want to write a wikipedia article about this, and need some images. There's plenty of images I can find on the web, but I haven't yet found any which meet the Wikipedia licensing requirements (https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Comm ... _Wikimedia).

If anybody has an image which I could use, and meets the licensing, please let me know. Thanks.

Shot in the dark, but have you tried asking around the various LGBT institutions in the city? I mean, this isn't explicitly LGBT, but the link between those two is enough they may have photos of them? Again, shot in the dark, but possibly.

A short Google search shows the original ads were done by Conill Advertising in the '90s. You could potentially contact them with the inquiry. Also, the City's Health Department took the series on its own after the ad-agency contract ended, so you could see if they have an archive.

Ultimately, it's a PSA, so I'm not sure what the rules require on Wikipedia, but the ads were not-for-profit, so perhaps there's a loophole.
