The making of Scarface and the "lost" images

More than a quarter-century ago, in the spring of 1983, director Brian DePalma shot one of the more memorable scenes for his movie Scarface on Miami Beach's Ocean Drive.

I happened to be on Ocean Drive that day - with my camera - and over the course of two or three hours I captured some images of movie-making magic that still endure to this day.

I've written a story for about how I made those images. And I share few of my thoughts on why this film resonates with so many more than 25 years after its release. Click here to read the story.
