Bill Owens: "I don't feel that Richie playing with guns will have a negative effect on his personality. (He already wants to be a policeman). His childhood gun-playing won't make him into a cop-shooter. By playing with guns he learns to socialize with other children." From Suburbia, 1972, gelatin silver print, 10 in. x 8 in., Addison Gallery of American Art, Phillips Academy, Andover, Massachusetts, gift of Katherine D. and Stephen C. Sherrill.
