Black Hollywood: Here Before Now with Kwaku Alston hosted by Photoville and Leica

What does today’s Black Hollywood look like through the lens of a seasoned Black photographer?⁠

What does it mean to be positioned as a standard bearer or gatekeeper of sorts, when it comes to the creation of imagery that will ultimately be used to sell to and be relatable to diverse audiences?⁠

This Saturday, October 3rd 4-5pm EST, Photoville and Leica will be hosting “Black Hollywood: Here Before Now with Kwaku Alston” a virtual conversation where Alston will present images that span a 25 year career that has visually contributed to the black narrative in Hollywood.

Gamechangers: The Athlete: Photographs by Walter Iooss, Jr.

Auction online at Christie’s July  23- August 11 | Bidding Begins July 23

Walter Iooss has photographed thousands of athletes, including the most iconic stars in the biggest arenas under the brightest lights. His unrivaled ability to ‘get the shot’—a skill that has made him a legend among those he has photographed—has allowed him unparalleled access to the inner sanctum of club houses, team planes, and the homes of many athletes. He has gained the trust and admiration of many.

From what I can tell, Walter has never taken a bad shot of anybody or anything. Years later, working together on Rare Air, we had become so comfortable around one another that I barely had to look up. You don’t have to perform for Walter.—Michael Jordan.
