“The Revolution Collection was based off of Malcom X in his later years when he believed that it’s not a question of black or white only good people and bad. “Our objective is complete freedom, justice and equality by any means necessary. I wanted to diffuse this iconic black figure with some Billy the Kid and 1920’s Gangtsa Band of Brothers. The image message on front page hughsimms.com pics is Buy American Fight the depression. I thought these three guys could be of use today in fighting this cause.”
But the photography? That is our own Tory.
This is the second shoot I have done for Hugh Simms. Hugh gave me some iconic “revolution” moments in our history and movies to recreate, including Malcolm X. I was so excited that he was into me shooting film and even Polaroids – I had some 1600 Sepia Polaroid film that fit the look we were going for perfectly. This was also my first ever manual focus shoot and what made me decide to shoot that way all the time. It was really fun to step out of my normal baby photographer mode and do this kind of shoot!!!
