Charleton Heston

Charleton Heston

Charleton Heston was photographed in the late Eighties for a cover story in Los Angeles magazine about Hollywood power brokers. The lightning bolts speak to Heston's stereotypical, on-screen portrayals of characters with powers of Biblical proportion. I suppose that if this portrait had been made later on, after he had been hired by the National Rifle Association, I would have had him hoisting two AK-47s above his head.

Hasselblad 500CM with 100mm Sonnar lens; Balcar strobes inside a large aluminum and plexiglass softbank; T-max 100. (Ektachrome EPN 100 was shot for the cover.)
