This essayistic performance piece (43 min.) specifically looks at the photographic impulse of serial killer Dennis Lynn Rader, who was caught in Wichita, Kansas, 2005 after thirty years of living a double life. Line Kallmayer visits Rader's old neighborhood, studying his self-portraits, the role of photography and paralleling the writer's own journey into form; into becoming a visual artist.

Based on research and the previous film work, Dennis a monodrama, this work was created for a performative reading session at Fotografisk Center in Copenhagen, November 2013. The event was part of the exhibition Andre Fiktioner (Other fictions), curated by Tomas Lagermand Lundme and Stine Ljungdahl.  A revised version was furthermore performed at True Crime Fiction conference, Birkbeck, University of London, 2016.

Read first two pages of essay. The full version will be published as part of a larger selection, currently in progress.
