2 Dead After Kentucky Kroger Shooting, Gunman Said “Whites Don’t Kill Whites” To Bystander

Neon Yellow Police Line Caution Tape

Two people are dead and a suspect is in custody after a gunman opened fired at a Kentucky Kroger supermarket in a town just outside of the city of Louisville. The son of the bystander said his father, who was armed, confronted the gunman who reportedly said “whites don’t kill whites” to the man before he was later apprehended. 

The Courier-Journal reports:

Eric Deacon was paying for his groceries Wednesday afternoon at Kroger just off Hurstbourne Parkway when he heard “a loud bang.” It sounded like a wood pallet slamming to the floor.

That’s when he saw a man in a neon sweatshirt racing past him, firing a gun back toward another man who was chasing him. Deacon hit the ground, and soon the men were shooting back and forth at each other in the parking lot.

“About that time, a lady came around the corner and got hit,” said Deacon, an EMT who shielded himself from gunfire in the front of the store behind a wall as he spoke to 911.

After police arrived, Deacon went over to administer CPR to the woman.

“When I looked at her, she was gone,” he said. “There was nothing I could do.”

The violence that unfolded on Wednesday at a Kroger grocery store in a busy Jeffersontown shopping center left two people dead, a suspect in custody and police searching for a motive.

In an interview with local outlet Wave3, Steve Zinninger said that his father confronted the gunman by drawing his own weapon. Zinninger said that the man told his father, “don’t shoot me and I won’t shoot you. Whites don’t kill whites.”

The identities of the victims and suspect have not been released to the public.

Kit Harington on Shooting ‘Game of Thrones’ in Iceland, and What He Kept From the Set

Even though Game of Thrones is one of the most critically-acclaimed television series of all time, actor Kit Harington, who plays the flowingly-haired Jon Snow on the HBO blockbuster, wasn’t so sure about the show’s chances during the 2018 Primetime Emmy Awards.


‘Game of Thrones’ Final Season: Everything You Need to Know About Season 8

It wasn’t that Harington didn’t have confidence in all the hard work the cast and crew put into Season 7, quite the opposite in fact. But after taking a year off from the awards due to eligibility issues in 2017, the actor thought the Academy of Television Arts & Sciences might not have the show in the front of their minds when it was time to give the awards out. That idea turned out to be all for naught: Game of Thrones ended up winning the award for Outstanding Drama series for the third time.

“It was exciting to be at the Emmy Awards again and to win, because we weren’t expecting to a win this time,” Harington told Men’s Journal. “We were away for a while, and I wasn’t even sure we’d get nominated, which in some ways sounds mad. But we missed a year and sometimes they’ll wait for a final season to give the awards. I thought Season 7 was brilliant, and I’m glad they recognized that.”


The 7 Most Explosive, Epic Battles in the History of ‘Game of Thrones’

Harington was front-and-center for Season 7 of the series, helping to forge alliances between warring Houses and trying to convince everyone in Westeros that they needed to fight back against the marching White Walkers beyond the Wall. The explosive, jam-packed season helped set up quite a few intriguing storylines for the final year of the show.

For as much as he’s sad that the series is ending after Season 8, Harington said that he’s thankful and lucky to have been part of the show for so long. Being on the show has catapulted Harington into stardom, and even helped him meet his wife, Rose Leslie, who played the character Ygritte on the series. The two married at Wardhill Castle in Scotland during the Summer of 2018.

“The whole experience has been incredible,” Harington says. “I’ve felt very fortunate to work with so many amazing people.”

Kit Harington
Dolce & Gabbana

Harington’s role as Jon Snow has also helped make him a global star, which is one reason why Dolce & Gabbana teamed up with the actor to make him the face of their men’s fragrances. The most recent release is The One Grey (available at Macy’s and Macys.com), a new fragrance that has bold and elegant smell, combining the scents of cardamom, vetiver, as well as hints of grapefruit, warm tobacco, and grey woods.

Harington spoke with Men’s Journal following the Emmy Awards and spoke about his experiences filming in 40-degrees below zero in Iceland, working with Dolce & Gabbana, and what he kept from the Game of Thrones set.

We know you can’t tell us any spoilers about the final season of Game of Thrones, or HBO will swoop in and kidnap us. But generally, what are you excited about and for fans to see of Season 8?

This is going to be so boring, but it’s a minefield to say anything. Even in the past when I’ve said something it gets taken the wrong way, or that I revealed something. Even if I’ll say that it’s going to be an exciting season, it’ll get put out in the wrong way. I don’t know how I’m going to deal with this when I actually have to promote the thing, but I don’t want anything to get taken wrongly. I’ll say this about Season 7, it was just brilliant to work on. The intensity of doing episodes, and getting to do more than I’ve ever done on the show, it was fantastic and a wonderful experience, and it’ll be exciting for fans to see what’s next.


The 5 Most Jaw-dropping Moments From the ‘Game of Thrones’ Season 7 Finale

Season 7 had some of the most thrilling scenes the show has ever had, including the journey in “Beyond the Wall.” What was it like to shoot those scenes and work in the locations you’ve been able to film in?

We filmed a lot of that in Iceland. It was brutal, being out there in minus-40 degrees and the freezing wind. It can be quite an experience. Overall, I love location work. I’m more of a person that thinks there is a benefit of filming on location, whether it’s Game of Thrones or something else. You get to go to these incredible locations and step on to these amazing sets in places where people would have to pay to come visit. If you’re in film, that’s what you want to do. You can’t really complain when you are bitterly cold, because you’re in some of the most stunning places in the world like Iceland or Croatia and so on.

Did you keep anything from the Game of Thrones set?

I actually didn’t take anything too crazy. I kept some of the armor that I use for Jon Snow’s outfit, like the wrist protectors I’ll wear in his costume. I thought those were pretty cool.

What have you enjoyed about your experience working with Dolce & Gabbana in the past and on this campaign?

It’s exciting to work on something global and to work alongside people who enthusiastic and passionate about what they do. It helps when you like the fragrance personally already when you wear it. It’s a great scent and I enjoy it. It’s kind of surreal to me to find myself walking through an airport and you see your own face staring back at you. Doing this type of stuff is a different side of work for me, because it’s not exactly acting, but you also get to be creative and performative with it, and D&G are great collaborators in that sense. Plus, you get to wear some nice suits and look great for a day [laughs].

Kit Harington
Dolce & Gabbana

You looked very sharp at the Emmys with the Game of Thrones cast. Do you have any style tips for regular guys?

I was wearing a Dolce & Gabbana suit at the Emmys, so that was fun to be able to look sharp like that. As an actor, you get a lot of help with your style, but advice-wise, I’d say that I don’t really have any tips, but for me getting dressed up is about feeling comfortable. I’d say for anyone to keep that in mind, because if you feel comfortable and feel good about yourself, you’ll look better too.

Yo Gotti has been named a person of interest in today’s shooting of Memphis rapper Young Dolph in Hollywood. The cops must have been perusing Twitter. 

Actually, according to TMZ, witnesses at the seen are who say Yo Gotti was involved.

Reportedly, both Yo Gotti and Young Dolph were staying at the same hotel, the Loews Hotel in Hollywood. Needless to say, that was a horrible twist of fate.

While both Gotti and Dolph represent Memphis, the two rappers have well-known beef. Allegedly their respective entourages crossed paths, an altercation occurred and shortly thereafter shots were fired.

Reps For Chris Brown Call San Jose Shooting Lawsuit “Frivolous”

Chris Brown is facing a new batch of legal drama but this time around, the R&B superstar isn’t easily copping to the blame.

Publicists for the 26-year-old singer are telling Hip-Hop Wired that although the January 11 San Jose shooting was indeed unfortunate, the days of their client being unfairly targeted by lawsuits is coming to an end.

“It is a poor reflection of our society that violence is so prevalent and it is always a tragedy when someone is physically harmed. However this is a completely frivolous lawsuit,” Breezy’s reps say in a statement.

“We expect that the case will be dismissed and in future, to avoid these reoccurring meritless lawsuits directed at Chris Brown, we plan to seek damages from all parties and their lawyers.”

Paul Briley, 22, was one of five people who were shot while attending the private “Chris Brown’s Capricorn Bash” at the Fiesta Nightclub on Monterey Highway. He recently filed a lawsuit citing negligence on the singer’s part, claiming his celebrity brings violence everywhere he goes and his security could have been a lot tighter. His legal team also inexplicably threw the Rihanna incident in the melee.

Briley is asking for unspecified damages for mental anguish, time missed from work and more.

Chris Brown Sued By Victim Of San Jose Club Shooting [VIDEO]

Remember Chris Brown’s San Jose show back in January which ended with five people getting shot for coming up?

Well, one of the victims wants restitution, citing the R&B star’s “lack of security” as the reason he took a bullet simply for being a fan.

Reports NBCBayArea:

Lawyers for Paul Briley, 22, claim the college student suffered “a permanent injury” to his foot when he was shot at “Chris Brown’s Capricorn Bash” at the Fiesta Nightclub on Monterey Highway early on the morning of Jan. 11.

All five people who were wounded suffered non-life-threatening injuries, San Jose Police spokesperson Officer Albert Morales told NBC Bay Area back in January.

The lawsuit includes references to prior violence incidents at Chris Brown concerts and his 2009 felony conviction for a notorious assault on his ex-girlfriend Rihanna.

“This shooting should never have happened. Brown’s managers and the concert promoters know that violence follows in Brown’s wake,” attorney Richard Alexander said in a statement.

The lawsuit claims the club had been over-sold beyond capacity. It also states, given “shooting incidents … at similar concerts hosted by Brown under similar circumstances,” the defendants should have implemented stringent security procedures, such as metal detectors and pat-downs.

The suit cites the defendants’ “negligence and carelessness” as having led to Briley’s injuries.

Briley is suing Brown and the club to recoup lost earnings, his medical expenses, and a variety of other damages including “past, present, and future physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering, including fright, shock, terror, and post-traumatic stress of being shot.”

Not to say to Chris Brown isn’t culpable for the crime but if these “violent incidents” at his concert preceded his reputation, what sense did it make to attend? Also, what does the Rihanna incident have to do with this?

Briley may be the only victim who has filed suit so far but you know the other four are inevitable.

Young Thug’s Road Manager Claims Birdman Is Responsible For Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting

(AllHipHop News) Bryan “Birdman” Williams may have told Power 105’s Angie Martinez he was not involved in the shooting that left Lil Wayne’s tour bus riddled with bullets, but the man currently in custody for the crime reportedly says the Cash Money Records head played a role in the incident.

[ALSO READ: Birdman Talks Lil Wayne Wanting To Leave Cash Money & Reports He Tried To Have Wayne Killed (VIDEO)]

TMZ reports:

Jimmy Winfrey claims in new court docs he shouldn’t be singled out for the crime, when “[Birdman’s] financial dispute with [Lil Wayne] is what ultimately led to the shooting.”

So, Winfrey argues, “[Birdman] should be held liable as a party to the crime.” He’s not specifically saying Birdman ordered the hit, but essentially that’s what he’s saying.

Winfrey (aka PeeWee Roscoe) was employed as Atlanta rapper Young Thug’s road manager. A Cobb County, Georgia indictment in the Winfrey case named both Thug and Birdman as possible co-conspirators in a plot to kill Wayne.

The Young Money leader has been trying to break from Birdman’s CMR imprint. He later sued the company for unpaid royalties and album advances. Wayne was also involved in a very public feud with Thug earlier this year.

Neither Birdman nor Young Thug have been formally charged in connection to the tour bus shooting in Atlanta. Last week Birdman denied he would ever try to harm the man he refers to as his “son.”

“That’s like the craziest sh*t I ever heard in my life,” said Birdman about the allegations he tried to have Wayne murdered. “I’m passionate about my family, my kids, and my life. Nothing means more to me.”

As details from the Chattanooga reserve center shooting in Tennessee continue to develop, authorities say the event has come to a violent end. The shooting took place at a Navy Reserve center and a military recruiting center in two separate instances, and the investigation to discover why the shooter opened fired is underway.

Chattanooga Mayor Andy Berke is set to address residents of the city regarding what is known about the unnamed Chattanooga shooter according to CNN, NBC News, and ABC News. The shooting was said to have taken place just before 11:00 a.m. local time, although much of this is still speculative.

Around 1:15 p.m. local time, the gunman was taken down, thus putting an end to the harrowing situation although there were some injuries. Reports say that at least two marines and one police officer are among the shooting victims after the gunman fired an unofficial 25-30 rounds at the two facilities.

More from ABC News:

At least three people — two Marines and one police officer — were injured in a shooting today in Chattanooga, Tennessee, according to law enforcement officials.

The shooter has not been identified but is believed to be dead after being neutralized and it is no longer an active shooter situation, sources told ABC News.

There were two scenes of the shooting — one at a Naval Operation Support Center and an Armed Forces Recruiting Center that houses an Army and Marine recruiting office — though all of the injuries are believed to have occurred at the Naval Operation Support Center, according to federal officials.

There are rumors that some Marines working at the Navy reserve center may have been killed, but we caution that these are largely unconfirmed reports.

We will update this post with new information as soon as we can.

Birdman and Young Thug Linked to Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting

The feud between Lil Wayne and his former mentor/father figure Birdman has reached a dangerous new low: According to an indictment filed in June, both Birdman and his newest mentee, rapper Young Thug, allegedly conspired to have Lil Wayne murdered. Their involvement comes as a footnote to a case involving Young Thug's former road manager, Jimmy "PeeWee Roscoe" Winfrey, which stems from an April drive-by shooting of Wayne's tour bus in Georgia, (no one was injured). Winfrey was arrested and charged for the shooting in June, but the indictment suggests that Birdman and Young Thug may have ordered him to fatally injure Wayne. "The indictment alleges that Young Thug made a threat against Lil Wayne, and tour bus shooting suspect Jimmy Winfrey carried out that threat," reports Atlanta’s WSB-TV. The murder plot reportedly stems from an ongoing record-label dispute between Lil Wayne and Birdman that resulted in Wayne filing a $ 51 million lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records over the delay of his album, Tha Carter V.

Rick Ross Is Out Of Jail; “Random” Shooting Takes Place Outside His Atlanta Offices

Meanwhile, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting a shooting happened early Monday morning outside of Twelve Studios. The space is also the home of Ross’ Maybach Music Group Atlanta headquarters.

A police report contends there is no evidence to suggest Ross was at the location during the incident or that the Miami native is involved. Twelve Studios issued a statement about the shooting.

“This isolated and random incident is not affiliated with Twelve Studios, any of our staff members or clients; including Rick Ross,” reads the statement. “This is the first time in over three years that we have been affected by any criminal activity regarding our property.”

AllHipHop.com reported in February that Twelve Studios was the site where Ross announced his company’s move to Atlanta. He also launched his Artists First joint venture with Twelve Studios’ founder Dina Marto.

“This is the new home for Maybach Music,” said Marto at the time. “Their artists will be recording here. Executives will have offices here, so they can get work done while they’re in the city of Atlanta.

Charleston Church Shooting Judge Is Known To Say The N-Word

Charleston County Magistrate James B. Gosnell Jr. has already proven himself to be a questionable choice to preside over the Charleston church shooting case. At the initial hearing for Dylann Roof, the 20-year-old suspected off killing nine innocent Black people on June 17, Gosnell angered many when he divided his sympathy between the victims and Roof’s family, who have been perceived through many reports for letting him fly off the handle due to a lack of parenting.

If that wasn’t enough to get the outrage boiling, the judge also went out of his way to make mention of a bond for the separate gun charge when the nine murders charges made it meaningless to bring up.

Now, just like Roof’s and the families of the victims, the back story of Gosnell is being probed and it has been discovered that he was once publicly reprimanded for openly saying the n-word in court.

In November 2003, Gosnell said he repeated a phrase to a Black defendant that he had heard a Black sheriff’s deputy say out loud at a bond hearing.

“There are four kinds of people in this world… Black people, white people, red necks, and n——,” as learned by The Daily Beast. The reported reasoning for saying the “ill-considered” statement was to get the young defendant to turn his life around.

The South Carolina Supreme Court’s website has official record of the judicial disciplinary order that was issued in October 2005. The next scheduled court date for the Roof case is on October 23.

Larry Wilmore Takes Fox News To Task Over Charleston Church Shooting Coverage

Larry Wilmore isn’t too pleased with Fox News’ coverage of the church massacre in Charleston, South Carolina. Then again, this shouldn’t come as a surprise.

This time, the late night talk show host, who initially declared he wouldn’t discuss the shooting on his comedy-based platform, later changed his mind and shared choice words about the network.

“I know we talk about race a lot on this show, but I think we can all agree this time that this is a racially motivated attack,” he said. “It couldn’t be clearer when it comes out of the killer’s mouth. But even with all of that evidence, on a day like today, Fox News just makes my f***king head explode.”

The host then played a series of clips from Fox News’ coverage which questioned whether Roof’s motives were targeted towards black people or Christians.

“I know you guys don’t want to admit that racial stuff isn’t going on, but how can there be any doubt when it came out of the gunman’s mouth? He told his victims, ‘I want to shoot black people,’” Wilmore said. “I think when he says black people, he means black people – and not Christians.”

Wilmore also highlighted presidential candidate Rick Santorum calling the shooting an “assault on religious liberty” and Santorum’s confusion of the shooter’s motives other than it being a “crime of hate.” The comedian-writer cited the 1963 bombing of the 16th Street Baptist Church in Birmingham, Alabama as one similarly horrific incident that didn’t require anyone to wonder the killers’ intent.

“Let me give you an example,” Wilmore explained. “Four black girls were murdered in a church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama, in 1963. Back then, no one pretended to wonder what the motivation was. If you tried to say it was about religion, even the perpetrators back then would have corrected you.”

Check out more of Larry Wilmore’s thoughts in the clip above.

Bill Maher Says Denying Racism In Charleston Shooting Is Racism

Despite the fact that racism, as supported by numerous reports, was the clear motivating factor in the Charleston, South Carolina, shooting, many in politics hesitated to use the word, and Bill Maher has had enough of it.

“Isn’t denying racism, itself, a form of racism?” said Maher to his panelists on Friday’s “Real Time.”

Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) discussed how removing the Confederate flag from the South Carolina Capitol would be a step in the right direction for healing, while MSNBC correspondent Joy Reid laid out her frustrations with the media avoiding discussions about racism.

Reid said: “Even when the perpetrator says, ‘I’m here to kill black people,’ wore the Rhodesia and South Africa — White South Africa flags — on his person and announced what his intentions were, which were clearly racist, but we mustn’t discuss it.”

“Real Time with Bill Maher” airs Friday at 10:00 p.m. ET on HBO.

Regal Cinemas Fires Troll For Shooting Off Racist Tweets [Photos]

At the current state of America, Black people have zero tolerance for any sort of perceived racism crossing their paths. A historic Black church was just shot up (during a prayer service of all times), a white woman famous for pretending to be Black for civil rights is becoming a viral sensation right underneath or unsuspecting noses and police officers are still using sledgehammers to solve ant-sized problems. So when Twitter user Hyley DiBona began to spew off ignorance via her Twitter account, she got the 1000 times the attention than her 2,988 followers generally attracts.

As the nation mourned over the nine lives lost inside the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church, allegedly at the hands of 21-year-old Dylann Roof, DiBona showed just how her privilenge blinded her to the realities of the world.

“Don’t complain about being a minority and say whites are a problem when your ancestors chose to come here knowing they would be a minority,” she exclaimed in the start of unprovoked tweets. “Half of minorities might as well have ‘you should feel bad for being white’ tattooed on their foreheads. IF YOU ARE A MINORITY AND DONT LIKE IT, GO BACK THATS WHAT FREEDOM IS.”

After she noticed she had garnered an audience, she tweeted the n-word, relishing in the type of a behavior a culture vulture is known to do. When angered Twitter users pointed out the fact that her views could be aligned with her employer, DiBona taunted them, revealing that she worked for Regal Cinemas and even took pictures of minority movie goers urging them to “go home.”

That was all that was needed to fan the flames and DDotOmen spearheaded a movement that garnered the attention of the country’s largest chain of theaters.

Swiftly and fiercely, she was fired.

Jon Stewart Says He Can’t Tell Jokes After Charleston Church Shooting

Jon Stewart makes his living turning the news into jokes. But on the day after a racially motivated massacre left nine dead at the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina, Stewart said he had no jokes to tell.

“I have one job, and it’s a pretty simple job,” he said on “The Daily Show” on Thursday night. “I come in in the morning, and we look at the news and I write jokes about it.”

He continued:

“But I didn’t do my job today, so I apologize. I got nothing for you in terms of jokes and sounds, because of what happened in South Carolina. And maybe if I wasn’t near the end of the run, or this wasn’t such a common occurrence, maybe I could’ve pulled out of the spiral. But I didn’t. And so, I honestly have nothing other than just sadness once again that we have to peer into the abyss of the depraved violence that we do to each other and the nexus of a just gaping racial wound that will not heal yet we pretend doesn’t exist.”

But having been down this road too many times, he also knows what will happen next. Or, rather, what won’t happen next.

“By acknowledging it — by staring into that and seeing it for what it is — we still won’t do jackshit,” he said. “Yeah, that’s us. And that’s the part that blows my mind.”

Stewart ripped those who suggest this is one person who lost his mind rather than the product of that “gaping racial wound.”

“In South Carolina, the roads that black people drive on are named for Confederate generals who fought to keep black people from being able to drive freely on that road,” he said. “The Confederate flag flies over South Carolina, and the roads are named for Confederate generals. And the white guy’s the one who feels like his country’s being taken away from him.”

Stewart didn’t do any humor segments. Instead, he devoted the rest of the show to his interview with Malala Yousafzai, the teenager who won the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize.

“I don’t think there’s anyone else in the world I’d rather talk to tonight,” he said.

Charleston: 9 People Killed In Shooting At Historic Black Church

Police in Charleston, S.C. have confirmed multiple fatalities after a shooting inside one of the oldest Black AME churches in the nation. A White gunman, who remains at large, opened fire at the Emanuel AME Church Wednesday night shooting and killing nine people.

Reports YAHOO! News:

Police described the suspect as a 21-year-old white man in a sweatshirt or hoodie and jeans, according to Charleston newspaper The Post and Courier. It cited unconfirmed reports that as many as eight people may have been hit by gunfire.

Charleston Police Department spokesman Charles Francis said the shooting occurred at the Emanuel AME Church around 9 p.m. local time.

He said police were still searching for a suspect, and he had no information on victims. Further details were not immediately available.

North Carolina television station WGHP, a Fox affiliate, reported on its website that some of the victims may have died.

Local broadcaster WCSC reported that the FBI was on the scene. The FBI could not be immediately reached to comment.

The website for the church said it has one of the largest and oldest black congregations in the region.

The church was built in 1891 and is considered a historically significant building, according to the National Park Service.

 

“We’re still gathering information so it’s not the time yet for details,” said Mayor Joe Riley. “I will say that this is an unspeakable and heartbreaking tragedy in this most historic church, an evil and hateful person took the lives of citizens who had come to worship and pray together.”

Church pastor, Clementa Pinckney, was among those killed. Authorities were still in the process of identifying the exact number of fatalities at press time.

Sally Mann on Her New Memoir, Shooting Digital, and the Fate of Art Photography in the Age of Selfies

Sally Mann

Sally Mann has spent her career examining those things closest to her. Her subjects—captured in arrestingly candid, luminous black-and-white images—have included her own young children, facing down the slings and arrows of childhood in Immediate Family (1992); the beloved Shenandoah Valley landscapes of her youth, revisited with an adult understanding of historical wounds in Deep South (2005); and her once strong-bodied husband of more than four decades, Larry, ravaged by muscular dystrophy in Proud Flesh (2009). Whatever her subject, Mann’s work is both lyrical and unsettling, evoking universal human themes of innocence, eroticism, and mortality.

In Hold Still: A Memoir with Photographs (Little, Brown), Mann reflects on her life and work with the same unflinching vitality. Beginning with the family boxes stored in her attic, which she unpacks to uncover “a payload of Southern gothic”—fortunes made and lost, hidden love affairs, and a truly bizarre murder-suicide—Mann compellingly connects the past to her own clothing-averse and horses- and boys-obsessed childhood; her close bond with Gee-Gee, the African-American woman who helped raise her; and her decision to commit herself to a career in photography while she was a student at Bennington. “I existed in a welter of creativity,” she recalls, “sleepless, anxious, self-doubting, pressing for both perfection and impiety, like some ungodly cross between a hummingbird and a bulldozer.” But what makes Mann’s search for creative origins a contemporary classic is her frank reckoning with the downsides of exposure, from the firestorm that erupted over the photographs of her children (they also drew the attentions of a stalker), to her deeply reasoned thoughts on the transgressive, transcendent act of portraiture. “To be able to take my pictures, I have to look, all the time, at the people and places I care about,” she writes. “And I must do so with both warm ardor and cool appraisal, with the passions of both eye and heart, but in that ardent heart there must also be a splinter of ice.” By phone, I spoke with the 64-year-old artist about the fate of art photography in the age of selfies and Snapchat—and about the thinking behind her new series, her most challenging to date.

Writing a memoir like this also demands a commitment to really go there—to unpack those boxes in the attic. How did writing it compare to working on a photographic series?
It was excruciating. I didn’t even know I wanted to write this book. But in a certain sense, I was transported, it poured out of me. The way it came to me was almost the way pictures come to me. It was almost irrepressible at a certain point. I didn’t want to do it. I was scared to death of it. I didn’t expect to do it. I had no plans to write a memoir. Never in a million years would I have thought I’d be in this position. But once I got started, it’s though I just tapped into some hidden reservoir of experience and memory. Then, those boxes. Once I got into those boxes, I thought, This is too good to let go of.

One of those boxes that you unpack in the book is the ruckus over the images in Immediate Family. Looking at the photographs now—they’re positively Edenic—it’s hard to imagine anyone reading something exploitative in them, or even to remember what a tremendous firestorm they sparked.
Not for me.

Do you think our culture has changed a lot since then?
Yes, with the exception of the right wing, I think the culture is less puritanical. And I think, with the advent of the Internet, we all know about the existence of very real and serious forms of child exploitation.

The controversy really foreshadowed the kind of privacy issues we’re wrangling with today. It’s not just attitudes toward art and nudity that have changed; image culture has changed.
There’s no doubt about that. The whole nature of photography has changed with the advent of a camera in everybody’s hand. Yesterday, I was walking down the street in New York City, looked up and saw a man who was washing windows without a harness, and the whole street was lined with people with their cellphones up in the air, waiting for him to fall.

What do you make of that?
I don’t know. Is it any different than Henri Cartier-Bresson waiting for his decisive moment? I don’t know. Are the pictures getting better? That’s the real question.



Expand

Photo: Sally Mann

You famously print your own work. Do you ever use a digital camera?
Just for snapshots. I don’t capture the image digitally, yet. I say “yet” because I’m not ruling it out. I have no animus toward digital, though I still pretty much take everything on a silver-based negative, either a web plate or just regular silver 8×10. But I’ve started messing a little bit with scanning the negative and then reworking it just slightly. I’m right on the horns of that dilemma, as it happens. I’ve got a big body of work that I’m either going to print big, 40×50, three-gallon buckets of chemistry and big huge sheets of paper and tons of time, or I’m going to send a scan to a digital printer. It’s a lot of work doing that kind of printing. It keeps you fit, I will say that.

Your new body of work is largely about race, a subject you devote several chapters of your book to. The memoir allowed you to revisit the past with an adult understanding, such as the life of your African-American nanny, Gee-Gee.
That section of the book is very dear to me.

The series, also inspired by Walt Whitman’s “I Sing the Body Electric,” is comprised of images of black men who came to your studio to be photographed.
Yes. There are about 40 of them. Six or seven appear in the book.

You’re very honest about the trade-off between appropriation and the possibility of capturing a transcendent moment—a moment of communion or empathy. I’m not sure many photographers are that honest.
It’s about the inevitability of making your subject vulnerable and exploiting them.



Expand

Photo: Sally Mann

You’re one of the few female artists who look unflinchingly at men, whether it’s your husband or this current series. What is it that continues to draw you about the body?
Certainly, in the case of my husband, it was a documentary impulse because his body is so dramatically changed. I had such a powerful impulse to explore that photographically to maybe help me reckon with what’s happened to him. As I say in the book, it’s amazing that he’s even willing to let me do it. But in general, working with bodies is something that’s very difficult for me. In the pictures of the black men, it’s often more about a gesture, such as a hand reaching. Somehow to me, that’s one of the most poignant of the pictures because it expresses such tenderness. Those kinds of pictures, you can use the human form to express an overarching humanity.

Is this a change from how you approached taking pictures in the past?
Increasingly, the work I’m doing is in service to an idea rather than just to see what something looks like photographed. I’m trying to explore how I feel about something through photography. Right now, it’s this legacy of slavery idea which is still pretty inchoate. I’m trying to explore slavery from the point of view of freedom, which seems contradictory. What got me started was reading William Styron’s book, The Confessions of Nat Turner, which led me to begin photographing the Great Dismal Swamp. Freed slaves formed communities there, and no slaves catchers and their dogs would get there.

I started exploring the idea of what freedom offered to the slaves—what represented freedom and literally—physically—what offered it to them. Rivers, of course, could be both an avenue of ingress—every slave in America pretty much passed through the James River in Virginia—and a conduit for escape: If you got across the Susquehanna, you were in the free states; if you got across the Ohio River, you were in the free states. Also, you could hide in rivers. I’ve been photographing the Blackwater River, which is the river where Nat Turner lived. Then, religion. I’ve been photographing the little tiny clapboard churches just in my own little 50-square-mile radius. It’s a challenge, because we all know what represents slavery, but how do you represent freedom photographically?

Your children always intuitively understood the difference between reality and the image. Have any of them pursued photography?
Jessie is an artist herself—a painter, not a photographer—and she continued to model; she did a lot of work with a photographer named Len Prince. Right now she’s working on a PhD in neuroscience. Emmett aspires to be a writer and is working on a book. Virginia is an attorney here in New York City. She loves art history, though.

Will you write another book?
No, I don’t think so. I’m beginning to see that I have limited time, and that’s such a shock. It shouldn’t come as such a big surprise to me that I’m suddenly old, but it has, and I’m getting a little panicked about it. I don’t think I have time to do any more writing. If I want to deal with what’s left of my photographic life, I’m going to have to get on it.

This interview has been edited and condensed.

Lil Wayne Survives Tour Bus Shooting

Unidentified assailants fired shots at a tour bus carrying Lil Wayne near Atlanta, while the rapper and others were unharmed, police say. The incident took place early on Sunday, hours after the 32-year-old performed at the Compound nightclub in the city. "Lil Wayne's tour buses were coming from Atlanta to Cobb County last night," a Cobb County Police spokesperson told E! News. "There were shots fired at the buses at about 3.14am. The shooting happened on I-285 near I-75 in Cobb County. There were at least a dozen people on both buses. No one was injured." "No one was arrested," the spokesperson added. "The only suspect they have is a white vehicle." The rapper and his entourage was later spotted exiting a parked bus surrounded by crime scene tape police had placed, NBC affiliate 11Alive TV reported. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution's website posted a video that shows several men, including one resembling Lil Wayne, sporting sunglasses and a gray hooded vest worn over a white T-shirt and carrying a red backpack, walking and lifting up and stepping under the tape. —Reporting by Ruth O'Neill

South Carolina Cop Charged With Murder For Shooting Unarmed Black Man [VIDEO]

The name Walter Scott will inevitably become the new headliner of the #BlackLivesMatter campaign as he was tragically gunned down by a South Carolina police officer on Saturday, April 4.

As we have grown accustomed to, Scott was unarmed at the time of the incident. The cop, 33-year-old Michael T. Slager, has been charged with murder and the video footage supports the accusation.

The New York Times has the details:

A white police officer in North Charleston, S.C., was charged with murder on Tuesday after a video surfaced showing him shooting and killing an apparently unarmed black man in the back while he ran away.

The officer, Michael T. Slager, 33, had said he feared for his life because the man took his stun gun in a scuffle after a traffic stop on Saturday. A video, however, shows the officer firing eight times as the man — Walter L. Scott, 50 — fled.

The North Charleston mayor announced the state charges at a news conference Tuesday evening.

The shooting comes on the heels of high-profile incidents of police officers using lethal force in New York, Cleveland, Ferguson, Mo., and elsewhere around the country. The deaths have sparked a national debate over whether police are too quick to use force, particularly in cases involving black men.

A White House task force has recommended a host of changes to the nation’s police policies, and President Obama dispatched Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., to cities around the country to try to improve police relations with minority neighborhoods.

North Charleston is the state’s third-largest city with a population of about 100,000. African-Americans make up about 47 percent of residents, and whites account for about 37 percent. The city police department is about 80 percent white, according to data collected by the Justice Department in 2007, the most recent period available.

“When you’re wrong, you’re wrong,” Mayor Keith Summey said of the shooting during the news conference. “And if you make a bad decision, don’t care if you’re behind the shield or just a citizen on the street, you have to live by that decision.”

The shooting unfolded after Officer Slager stopped the driver of a Mercedes-Benz with a broken taillight, according to police reports. Mr. Scott ran away, and Officer Slager chased him into a grassy lot that abuts a muffler shop. He fired his Taser, an electronic stun gun, but it did not stop Mr. Scott, according to police reports.

Moments after the struggle, Officer Slager reported on his radio, “Shots fired and the subject is down. He took my Taser,” according to police reports.

But the video, which was taken by a bystander and provided to The New York Times by Mr. Scott’s lawyer, presents a different account. The video begins in the vacant lot, apparently moments after Officer Slager fired his Taser. Wires, which carry the electrical current from the stun gun, appear to be extending from Mr. Scott’s body as the two men tussle and Mr. Scott turns to run.

Something — it is not clear whether it is the stun gun — is either tossed or knocked to the ground behind the two men and Officer Slager draws his gun, the video shows. When the officer fires, Mr. Scott appears to be 15 to 20 feet away and fleeing. He falls after the last of eight shots.

The officer then runs back toward where the initial scuffle occurred and picks something off the ground. Moments later, he drops an object near Mr. Scott’s body, the video shows.

Even with the video evidence, we all witnessed firsthand the cops who killed Eric Garner get let off the hook. The entire world–including Hip-Hop Wired–will be watching this case very closely.
