"The faces in this book were originally Polaroids used to cast the movies I have made. Beginning with my film "Mala Noche," I took the pictures of the lead actors, so that when planning details of the shoot I could stare at the pictures and imagine the characters coming to life, and how they might visually relate to one another. As my films grew larger and when I started to get more money to make them, I used the Polaroids of the faces to do the initial casting. I think that the bulk of these pictures are of people that I had a meeting with about playing a part in either "Drugstore Cowboy" or "My Own Private Idaho." These were taken in casting sessions."--Gus Van Sant
