MACK –Christian Patterson


The book Redheaded Peckerwood, published by MACK, is inspired by the tragic story of two young Americans, Charles Starkweather, 19, and Caril Ann Fugate, 14, who in 1958 killed ten people during a three-day massacre in Nebraska. The places, objects and central characters depicted in these images have been subjected to the photographer’s interpretation. This series deliberately blends fiction and reality, past and present, piecing together the various facts and theories surrounding this macabre tale. Although Patterson’s photographs are the heart and soul of this project, they are complemented and informed by documents and objects that belonged to the killers and their victims: a map, a poem, a letter of confession, a stuffed animal and other items. They serve as clues to this visual enigma while leaving it up to the reader to solve the remaining mysteries. This intriguing work combines photojournalism, forensic photography and landscape photography to become a visual narrative .
