Rare Photos From Salvador Dali's Playboy Shoot In The 70s

In 1973, the sleepy Spanish town of Cadaqués was turned upside down when Salvador Dali arrived for a Playboy shoot.

There was no way the town could have prepared for the onslaught of crazy fans who arrived to stalk him or the odd things that would happen in the name of surrealist art.

According to the story, Dali's fans would wait outside his home and chant "Master! Master!", waiting for him to exit the building. Imagine all this happening as Dali directs his Playboy Bunnies to entangle themselves with snakes around a giant egg. It was likely the most exciting event of the year for this quiet, coastal town.

When asked about the meaning behind his images for this particular shoot, Dali was very straight-forward. This shoot was no artistic attempt, only pure business.

“The meaning of my work is the motivation that is of the purest—money," said the 69-year-old. "What I did for Playboy is very good and your payment is equal to the task.”

Well, at least he was honest.

By the way, did you know also know that Salvador Dali Made A Very Strange Cookbook?
