Gene Simmons, 2016.iCons project for Elton John AIDS Foundation

I shot Gene in his home in LA. He lives in this huge mansion with one of the largest rooms being a collection of KISS memorabilia, from KISS condoms to a KISS coffin! He was pleasant to speak to, despite his catalogue of Michael Jackson jokes. But when he stepped in front of the camera he turned into a pastiche of himself, which was fun to see and capture.

Born Chaim Witz on August 25, 1949 in Haifa, Israel, Gene Simmons first decided he wanted to be in a band while in middle school, after watching girls scream at The Beatles on TV.

He was in several bands before co-founding KISS with Paul Stanley in the 1970s.

Simmons later pursued interests in fashion, publishing, and acting, and starred in the A&E reality TV show Gene Simmons Family Jewels.
