Jacob Shooting at Ballerinas, Moscow 2009: "Originally, I had planned to shoot Jacobís sister, but at 13 she was already too mature for this project. When I came to Jacobís room, he was sitting on the bed. There was a collection of weapons, mostly Kalashnikovs, real ones, next to him. He picked up an old machine pistol that had been used during the Second World War and pretended to shoot at the ballerinas twirling on the TV screen. His grandmother had come into the room earlier and put on a cultural channel perhaps to balance the guns."
