Bettie Page–whatta gal! The brunette bombshell was the the number one pin-up girl of the post-war era, who suddenly disappeared at the peak of her career in 1957, and became a cultural icon. This intimate film, Bettie Page Reveals All, narrated by Page from interviews before her death in 2008 and directed by tonight’s guest Mark Mori, details her childhood, her career, and her extraordinary life.

I was invited to photograph the protest and shutdown of the Hobet Mine in Boone and Lincoln Counties in West Virginia last week. The organizers knew me from my participation in the Blair Mountain March last year. This is the biggest mountaintop removal mine in the US, I am told. I was not aware of the location selected until we got there.

I’ve gone back and forth on this. Given the existence of Photoshop in this day and age, it’s impossible to have such a thing as photographic evidence for at least some set of people. And I think the counterfactual is useful here. You’ll remember that George Bush released pretty grisly photos of Uday and Qusay Hussein, which were summarily splashed across front pages, and they definitely gave me a queasy feeling at the time. The word “trophy” came to my mind as well.
And yet, these are public records.
