Icons,  Legends & Muses

Moments: Icons, Legends & Muses  by African-American photographer James L. Hicks II is a photographic project aimed at celebrating and honoring models of color from the 70's, 80's, 90's, and 2000's who have had a significant influence on the fashion industry and his career as a photographer. This project seeks to blend art, fashion, and history to create a visually stunning collection that not only pays tribute to these icons but also empowers the current generation. The project will culminate in a photography exhibition, a coffee table book, that will be published by Trope Publishing, Foreword by iconic model Alva Chinn, and due to be released in 2025 , a documentary series and an online presence to promote the legacy of these legendary models.
