About the Work

This is the only work I photographed in North America for the exhibition 'White Man's Tale'. As in a Vietnam work, I included a B52, this time at Elsworth Airforce Base, South Dakota. I also show Darcy Jealous and his younger brother, who live on the nearby Lakota Sioux Reservation at Wounded Knee. Their father, who shot himself, is buried in the cemetery. I could not find where. The highway from Wounded Knee leads west past the Sioux Nation Laundromat and not far from the reservation, Mount Rushmore may be seen. A little further to the north, a federal sign informed me that I had reached the 'Center of nation' - i.e. the US centre of nation.

″I still use the same approach to my work: I get an idea, think of the title and then make the work. So not much has changed since 1964″
