"Eddie Gerald often documents a location after the riot of an occurrence that took place, died down; after news reporters, covering the event, have left the scene. He does not always take part in the peak moments, but gathers the pieces of the events after everyone is gone. Then quietly, after all the upheaval, he remains alone to examine, to pick up the broken pieces and to visualize what had happened." Ora Krauss, Curator
