      Another print from this edition is in the collection of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

      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.
