John Waters, age 9.



“This is the childhood portrait my parents had of me in their home growing up and I now have in my house. I remember posing for this picture and I was nuts then. But I was just figuring it out and I didn’t really mind being nuts, and so I wanted to remember that. That moustache of course I didn’t have at nine-years-old but I should have. In my mind it was festering.”

From the Guardian's highlights of John Water's Rear Projection exhibition at the Marianne Boesky Gallery, NYC, April 3 - May 2, 2009.
