This metaphorical image, made early in Draper’s career, was taken two years after he moved from segregated Richmond, Virginia, to New York to study photography. He shows us one thing—bedsheets hanging on a clothesline, seemingly seen at night—while alluding to another, hoods at a Ku Klux Klan gathering.
