Kareem Black photographs the stars of the upcoming Quentin Tarantino film, Django Unchained, for VIBE Magazine. Leonardo DiCaprio, Jamie Foxx, and Kerry Washington appear on the cover and as the main feature in the December 2012/January 2013 issue.
Kareem worked with VIBE Photo Editor Alan Ket and Creative Director Andre Jointe to create clean, sharp black & white portraits. The day was star-studded with over a hundred people at the shoot. “Harvey Weinstein and his daughter stopped by, and so did Hype Williams and Irv Gotti,” says Kareem. “One of my fondest memories was talking politics with Leonardo DiCaprio. I’m a political nut and so is he so that was cool (plus I loved Titanic)”. Kareem describes Jamie Foxx as a “consummate entertainer” who was always “on” and ready to share a laugh. About leading lady Kerry Washington, Kareem says she was an “intense personality with a focused demeanor”.
