A stunning photoessay by Anthony S. Karen on the 9 years he spent documenting the lives of Ku Klux Klan members is up on Slate.

"Whenever you're granted access into a person's intimate space, you're establishing a relationship based on trust," he said. "In my opinion, trust is trust. That doesn't suggest I become complacent with my situation to the point of exploitation, nor does it mean I'm selectively disregarding certain moments to depict something that is not. I do admit I try to offer a balanced perspective as to my experiences within marginalized organizations. ... [T]o consciously distance myself will in effect (or could) create bias."
