Three chromogenic prints, on Kodak Professional photo paper, 1995. 175x465 mm; 6 7/8x18 inches overall. 508x610 mm; 20x24 inches (sheet). Edition of 200. Signed and dated ink on the verso.

The original triptych was comprised of individual Polaroid photographs. In 1990, Carrie Mae Weems was invited by Polaroid to use their mammoth 20-by-24-inch camera. It was Weem's first use of color in her work. The first Polaroid of the triptych, See No Evil, is now in the collection of the J. Paul Getty Museum.
