This is from a series I was working on in the early 1990s—re-reading, re-writing, re-working books that had been banned from import into the US or banned from school libraries. I shot portions of the books on a copy camera with black and white film and then worked back into the gelatin silver prints, using reducing agents to chemically (partially) erase and edit them. This one is from “Another Country” by James Baldwin.
