Description

"This was the beginning. They are self-portraits. I perceive myself as being behind a hood...The idea of evil fascinated me...What would it be like to be evil? To plan and to plot? I started conceiving an imaginary city being overtaken by the Klan. I was like a movie director. I couldn't wait, I had hundreds of pictures in mind, and when I left the studio I would make notes to myself, memos: 'Put them all around the table, eating, drinking beer.' Ideas and feelings kept coming so fast; I couldn't stop, I was sitting on the crest of a wave."
