CASE NO. 05CR498: FROM NO ONE TO SOMEONE, 2013

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.
