“I think you can kill a series of pictures if you keep chipping away. I’m very aware of that when I’m editing pictures. I have these sort of set rules: firstly, I never edit on a computer screen, I always work with hand prints. I always have piles of edit A, edit B, edit C, and they sort of dance between each other. I work that way when sequencing and I look at them and live with them. I may come into the studio one morning and just remove a picture and suddenly you feel the series go up a notch. But then I’m aware that you can look at things too much and you can kill them, like listening to your favourite record too much or eating your favourite food. We can absolutely kill the things we love by too much exposure to them.”

The road is bleak and punishing, filled with people who are forced onto it or left there by forces bigger than themselves. But it also has a seductive draw. Garry Winogrand, driving out of New York in a 1957 Ford Fairlane, went in search of America and found a vast emptiness, even when people filled the frame. The residents of the towns he passes through are as uprooted as he is, held tenuously to the earth by plastic and false faith.

Cars swim this road like great, graceful sharks – lethal, amoral, consuming one kind of poison and spitting out another. It’s their road, not ours; they just need us to buy the gas.

John Coltrane, Elvin Jones, Jimmy Garrison and McCoy Tyner performing ‘Alabama’.

Coltrane wrote the song after the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing by the klu klux klan that killed Addie Mae Collins who was 14, Cynthia Wesley who was 14, Carole Robertson who was 14 and Denise McNair who was 11. The attack happened today (September 15th), 1963.

2 Black boys were also murdered by whites on that day in Birmingham. Their names are Virgil Ware who was 13 and Justin Robinson who was 16. Remember them as well.

"I have always loved marijuana. It has been a source of joy and comfort to me for many years. And I still think of it as a basic staple of life, along with beer and ice and grapefruits - and millions of Americans agree with me."
