The Photographer Speaks

Rick Wilking, who took the now-famous "bathroom note" photograph speaks to Gelf magazine, about the picture. Evidently, it’s the real thing, and Bush wrote it.

Yes, the note is real. And yes, the president really wrote it. “It was shot at a pretty good distance,” Wilking tells Gelf. “I had no idea what was on the paper.” Until, that is, the editors at Reuters enlarged it. “I was just as surprised as you,” Wilking says.

Wilking also spent some time in New Oleans, photographing the post-Katrina chaos.
