I spent some time trying to find out what evil looks like. From personal experience, I wanted to give it a face, so I ‘d recognize it if I would run into it again. I photographed people around me as criminals. This became a series of twelve photographs taken with a pinhole camera and a shutter speed of five minutes. The models, all men, sat still for five minutes bare-chested and with pantyhose over the head, as if I kidnapped thèm. These serie portraits ‘see no evil’ #1 to #12 I printed on newspaper.
