This photo is obviously inspired by the one and only Christopher Wallace, aka The Notorious B.I.G., aka Biggie Smalls. Regarded as one of the most influential rappers of all time even though his life was cut short at 24 years old. “We can’t change the world unless we change ourselves.” – Biggie Smalls
As part of Black History Month my photo professor at @laneycollege, Franklin Avery @flaphoto, is having us recreate lighting and portraits of famous African Americas. A great way to celebrate this month, these icons, and Oakland locals.
