"Someone who I wish was in the exhibit was George Carlin, whom I think absolutely fits, and so did Frank. But we couldn’t find a photo of him. We have to look cool some of the time; we looked at hundreds of George Carlin photos, and in front of the camera he always makes these goofball, 'class clown' photos. He pops his eyes, and he puts his face forward.
It just doesn’t work in a photography exhibit. It doesn’t have the aesthetic, which I call relaxed intensity, that’s the aesthetic sensibility of this exhibit. Almost all the artists’ photos have this relaxed intensity. We can’t put a goofball up there. It would wreck it. So Carlin’s on the alt-list, even though with a different photo he would’ve been on the main list."
