"I’ve gone back and I’ve revisited those assassinations, the civil rights movement. I have looked at it in any number of ways through any number of pieces. And for me this piece, while certainly not perfect, is a very interesting place to pause. It’s beautifully articulated—both the video and the twenty photographs that accompany it."
