Trina Parks & Gloria Hendry

In conjunction with the release of the latest James Bond film, Spectre, I was honored to photograph some of the legendary black women who have costarred in the Bond films: Naomie Harris, Gloria Hendry, and Trina Parks.

Essence magazine published the portraits in conjunction with the event: Black Women of Bond Tribute held at the California African American Museum in Los Angeles.

I grew up watching Bond films, from Trina Parks making history in Diamonds Are Forever and Gloria Hendry in Live and Let Die, so it was an honor to contribute to the franchise.
