Ace's & Eights' (May 2019)
During the afternoon of August 2nd, 1876, Wild Bill Hickok was shot in the back of the head whilst playing poker. The last hand he played at that table was two aces, next to two eights, or as we know it today, 'The Dead Man's Hand.'
I've never played poker, truth be told I don't know how to. I travelled to Las Vegas in November 2018 to explore the Americana I had fallen in love with in movies, television and music. The vast American landscape, combined with the muscle car, fuel filled Las Vegas suburbs, introduced a new sense of what 'Americana' meant to me.
This is Las Vegas in 2018 on black and white film, this is my Dead Man's Hand.
