Lot Essay

"I feel sort of voracious. I just think about my son, I have kids, and my parents are from the South, and I would hear things—my grandfather was shot and killed—so I’m just documenting things, and I’m saying, ‘Damn, this shit ain’t stopped'... You know, so I think it is the weight, and I just have to get it out." — Henry Taylor
