The American Pictures collective 1976-83
Back row from left: Elisabeth Colding and Vibeke Rostrup Bøyesen from Denmark, Jean from Martinique, Dominique Kofod from France and Howard Pinderhughes from USA.
Front row from left: Tony Harris from USA, my self and Jerry Justice from USA.
The picture must have been taken at night, for one person is conspicuously absent: Harb Lelshab from USA, who was in prison for life for murder. We got permission to get him out and run our theater in the daytime, but he had to be back in his cell in the night. He
was doing so great that he was released after 8 years - half of which he spent in his one apartment financed by the Danish government. He is doing great today, so that way of rehabilitating prisoners is better than the American way of destroying them in prison.
