“I’d certainly not thought of the negativity of photography; that’s a new one on me. There’s two other ideas, which I play around with. One is that the book itself is essentially negative publicity. We are making public material which is about extraordinary rendition, so that itself is an act of creating negative publicity about what happened. And I guess the other way is that a lot of the book is about secrecy and redaction and masking, which is itself in a way the opposite of making things public, so is another sense negative publicity.” Edmund Clark in conversation with Crofton Black and Nils Stear • British Journal of Photography
