"Photograph that show the places where nine of our cultural heroes were killed in car crashes... Rogers took the images on the anniversary of the deaths, at the exact time of day they occurred, and in the precise position the car was before impact. Whereas some of the final photographs are rendered atmospheric by darkness, many reveal the rather banal landscape witnessed by the subjects in the final seconds before their deaths."
Jackson Pollock, August 11, 1956
James Dean, September 30, 1955

"Rogers is inviting you to a haunting, but I assure you that the effect is unexpectedly moving and life-affirming."
