Plenty of films have taken a stab at bringing Bible stories to life, from “The Ten Commandments” and “Jesus Christ: Superstar” to this year’s “Son of God” and “Noah.” But despite those movies’ different genres and tones, these films all tend to share one similarity: They have white casts, even though the Bible’s characters would have been from parts of Africa or the Middle East. Photographer James C. Lewis of Noire3000 | N3K Photo Studios has decided to rectify by presenting these iconic figures in a new light.

Lewis’ “Icons Of The Bible” photo series depicts some of the most famous characters from the Old and New Testament exclusively as people of color, including Simon Peter, Elijah, King Solomon and the archangel Gabriel. The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

"I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

*** UPDATE*** Many thanks to Shirley R. Gindler-Price and Jim Chew for pointing me in the right direction. This photo is one of thousands shot by  Philadelphia photographer John W. Mosley from the 1930s through the 1960s on Chicken Bone Beach in Atlantic City, NJ. Mr. Mosley’s archives are housed at Temple University in Philadelphia. Photo: John W. Mosley, Courtesy of the Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection, Temple University Libraries. This fabulous photo of beautiful friends (sisters? cousins?) has been making the rounds for eons online - via Pinterest, Tumblr, etc. However, no one has been able to identify any of these women or the photographer. I see the Shelburne (Hotel?) is in the background. Maybe they are in Atlantic City, NJ? If you have any information about the four women in this photo - or the photographer - please let me know in the comment section.

Girlhood

This series explores issues surrounding young women in their transformation from adolescence to womanhood. It seeks to address ideas that begin at birth and continue throughout their adult life, such as misinformation on sexuality and their own bodies, to gendered expectations of what’s ‘right’ and ‘wrong’. A mixture of still lives and self portraits, these images become isolated in a hot pink, hyperbolic world, setting out to represent this constructed culture for young women.

Shot with a Hasselblad, Portra 160.
