Higher Source by Brandon Bandy and Rachel Jackson catalogs sites which are the subject of crime scene, paparazzi, conspiratorial, and generally notable photographs. Using these historic images as a guide, this book archives what remains. Due to cover-ups or privacy concerns, these locations are often obfuscated.

As structures are demolished, addresses are changed, land is cleared, and fences are erected, sites of tragedy and infamy disappear. Further complicating the process, sifting through information online becomes increasingly difficult, everything is ambiguous. Does the specificity of these images even matter, or is it about a photographic aura, constructing a specter of some real or fictional event?
