“Growing up…I didn’t see myself a lot both within my community and in the media. [Now] when I’m photographing a project I created, I want to see a diverse range of people, race, sexuality, gender expression, and socio-economic status. I don’t want people to feel excluded in the way I did. There’s a certainly level responsibility to show all colors of the rainbow.”
We sit down with Playbill’s staff photographer, Marc J. Franklin, to talk about his 360-degree, surround experience with theatre, what it's like to photograph Broadway stars, and our commitment to giving visibility to artists of color.
