Christian Patterson - Redheaded Peckerwood
The spectre of violence lurks amid the series of found objects, constructions, beauteous landscapes and arcane architectural details that pepper Christian Patterson's Redheaded Peckerwood. Indeed, this stunning photo book traces the the story of 19-year-old Charles Starkweather and 14-year-old Caril Ann Fugate, who murdered 10 people, including Fugate’s family, during a three-day killing spree across Nebraska before their eventual capture in Douglas, Wyoming. Recreating scenes, places, architectures and objects central to the story, Redheaded Peckerwood is part documentary essay, part forensic study, part fiction. An incredible, gutsy publishing project from Mack Books (London). Now available in an updated third edition.
