Roll Over To Zoom
Pogo The Clown
Friendly men don laughing faces to entertain children, but often frighten them with their frozen visages. So why would a truly evil man hide his nature in the same disguise -- is it ironic, perverse or poetically approprate? Serial killer John Wayne Gacy murdered dozens of children through years when he also performed as Pogo the Clown for charitable events. On death row, he painted a self-portrait depicting himself in full Pogo regalia -- an image that is reproduced here. It's twisted, it's revealing, it's contradictory -- it simultaneously boggles and provokes the mind. It's no tribute to the sick f*ck, but a reflection of human complexity.
