Notorious B.I.G. at Madame Tussaud's New York

A likeness of New York native Notorious B.I.G. (Christopher George Latore Wallace). He was the East Coast standard-bearer in the East Coast - West Coast hip-hop feud of the 1990s; he was killed in a Los Angeles drive-by shooting in early 1997 at age 24. Sean "Puffy" Combs eulogized him a few months later with his song "I'll Be Missing You," which sampled The Police's "Every Breath You Take" heavily.


Madame Tussaud's - always a tacky tourist trap, but also always a good place to test my portrait photography skills - and my prime lens (35mm f/1.8).
