Mug Shots as Art

Check this article out, I loved the whole concept as I too collect and use in my work candid vintage “nobody” photo’s…I think of them, those strange faces looking back, as “anybody and everybody”. Some of them are comfortable and some are stiff and staring, but they always move me in a way that new digital photos don’t always these days. Here’s the link, it’s a good read, check it out.
