Meet the R&D: Writer Alix Lambert and her project CRIME, USA

Before becoming a playwright , essayist, and journalist, Joe Loya robbed banks for a living. His memoir, The Man Who Outgrew His Prison Cell, was published in 2004. Joe has been a friend of mine for many years and I have interviewed him at length. He will be one of the characters represented in my play CRIME, USA. I spent a day with Joe going to five of the banks that he robbed and photographing him coming out of those locations. As you can see, two of the banks no longer exist (one is a tamale place, the other is a computer store) ... but I took the pictures anyway. Here are the resulting pictures.
