“Down these mean streets a man must go who is not himself mean, who is neither tarnished nor afraid … He must be … man of honor … He talks, that is, with rude wit, a lively sense of the grotesque, a disgust for sham, and a contempt for pettiness.”
Raymond Chandler, the great fiction crime novelist, wrote these words in a 1959 essay, “The Simple Art of Murder”. These same words define Zachary Wohlman, up and coming professional boxer who we filmed in some of the same settings that can be found in Chandler’s books.
Out now is delivery one of the Freshjive spring 2012 collection, inspired by subtle aspects of 50s men style and photographed in Raymond Chandler’s hardboiled aesthetic of the city in his writings.
