Living Legends: The Makers
The power behinds the scenes is brought to the forefront in Living Legends. In a series of group portraits, Detroit fashion makers become the art they create. The fashion artists, who created the editorial in Tenth Zine, Vol. 3 (www.thetenthzine.com), are celebrated and empowered while playing host to the light usually shined on their work. Randal Johnson, creative director and stylist behind the volume’s fashion editorial, honed in on a regal charm, which particularly shines in a photo of Marsha Music and David Philpot who appear to lord over all that sits behind them. Shot in Detroit for New York-based Tenth Zine, the images were also published in The Metropolitan and Journal of the Leslie-Lohman Museum of Gay & Lesbian Art (Issue 55, 2015).
