The Original Huster is a celebration, investigation
deconstruction into the backroom moments that
girls, gangsters, spies, courtesans, and cross-
women icons of the prohibition era.
Celebrated, they appear in classic form, printed on
backs of old jazz recordings.
Investigated, the untold moments that made them
observed with quiet intimacy, then exposed on
on the painted quality of a vintage esquire.
Deconstructed, the hustle shifts hands, and the
powerless become powerful.
