?snaps: Ralph Eugene Meatyard A businessman five and one-half days a week, Ralph Eugene Meatyard photographs on weekends, following his demon around backyard and garage, into abandoned houses, up and down the back roads of central Kentucky, with some of his handsome family usually in tow for use as models, his car trunk full of props --ghoulish masks, artificial flowers, dismembered dolls, maybe a rubber chicken or a dead possum to hang on a flowering tree like an ornament. By 1960, after 10 years of making pictures, he broke through to something all his own, and since then his reputation has grown steadily. James Baker Hall
