Night after night, this band of young rebels raise their voices to the darkness in an inspiring uprising of song and spirit. They are at once our history and our future, inciting rebellion and leading the way to change. Like the revolutionaries who embraced Alexander Hamilton's vision for a new America, the remarkable actors in these photographs embraced Lin-Manuel Miranda's vision for a new American musical. In doing so, they upended expectations and made us see things differently. I captured their portraits using antique cameras and lenses. To bring a richness and timeless beauty to these images, I chose to print them in classic silver gelatin, still the gold standard for black and white printing. All in an effort to echo, in a small way, what 'Hamilton the Musical' so brilliantly achieves in enlivening our own history in a way that makes it so relevant and present for us today. This is a time when history is being made in ways that our forefathers could never have imagined. It celebrates and reverberates this history eight times a week in cities across America.
