Orcatraz: The Prohibition Years

This weekend, my friend Thane and I shot a 1920’s gangster themed photo shoot. Its been something that I had wanted to do for  awhile. The 1920’s are my favorite decade in Americas History.


A few words of wisdom from the Public Enemies of the era

“When I sell liquor, it’s called bootlegging; when my patrons serve it on Lake Shore Drive, it’s called hospitality.”

-Al Capone

“These few dollars you lose here today are going to buy you stories to tell your children and great-grandchildren. This could be one of the big moments in your life; don’t make it your last!”

-John Dillenger     

“Johnnie’s just an ordinary fellow. Of course he goes out and holds up banks and things, but he’s really just like any other fellow, aside from that.”
– Mary Kinder, Dillinger’s girlfriend
