Fiona Aboud and
Captain America

VISHAVJIT SINGH

 

 

 

In late 2011 I penned a vision of Captain America with a turban and beard into a poster for New York City Comic Con. 

This inspired Fiona Aboud, the renowned photographer, to envision my 2-D image in the third dimension.

Inspired in turn by her work on Sikhs in America, I donned the spirit of Captain America on a beautiful summer day in New York City recently.

Details from some of her photos shown here (as you scroll down this page) consitute but an appetizer captured on a phone camera.

The main creative output of Fiona's photo-shoot will be released in the near future.

Stay tuned!

Great job, Vishwajit Singh. My seven-year old son is a great fan of Captain America. Now I will be able to show him a Sikh can dress up as Captain America, just like anyone else. This is the kind of stuff we need to show our kids that they can be part of any culture and celebrations, without compromising their own Sikh heritage.
