In The Greater Good series, Anthony Hooker revisits the enticement of African American males in Tuskegee, Alabama, into a study of syphilis. As images of untreated patients are overlapped with those of the medical facility in which the now-questionable study was conducted, Hooker interrogates the claim made by the United States Public Health Service, in 1932, that the suffering of a few hundred men (at least 15% of whom died) was for "the greater good" of Americans. Hooker’s work is included in several collections, including the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.
