Shriner Potentate A.J. McKenzie

Title

Shriner Potentate A.J. McKenzie

Description

This photograph is a formal portrait of Shriner Potentate A.J. McKenzie taken in 1930.

Abstract

The photograph depicts MacKenzie wearing his ceremonial hat (a Fez) adorned with official Shriner logos and iconography. This (both the Scimitar logo and style of hat) demonstrates both the Orientalism prevalent in the Shriner organization and contains precursors to the styles and iconography seen in photographs of members of the Moorish Temple and the Black Legion.
