‘We the People’ was shot for Look magazine in 1961 for a story about the US constitution.

Art Kane gathered a group of friends together on a distant hillside, then had assistants hold an American flag directly in front him.  Through perspective and depth of field, this created the impression that the the people were standing on top of the flag. Its concept, saturated colour and strong composition also reflect an ongoing passion for flags in this early ‘hit’ for Art Kane.
