I’m fascinated by old mug shots. I love the candid nature of them. They show ordinary people in their every-day clothes photographed perhaps for the first and only time in their lives. Some look worried, some look cocky, some just look pretty vacant (check out John Dodgson), but they’re all really interesting.
I feel a bit sorry for the guy at the bottom though, who just sounds like he’s trying to survive, plus that’s huge scar he’s got on his face. Looks like he had a pretty tough life to me… [7 photos]
