Faced with a challenge to their being that few portrait photographers could hope to recreate in the studio, the subjects of these images -- most shown front and side, many marked by the customary booking numbers, and some whose fingerprints are still attached -- respond with expressions that range from dazed to defiant. Some of the images even come with colorful ledger entries: "Susp. is hooked steals to feed her habit," for example. Even without such accusations mugshots automatically indict their subjects in most peoples' minds, yet that prejudgment is often at odds with the dressy clothes, stylish hair, and benign affect of these sitters. (A few are shown with bloody bandages wrapped around their heads, but many more have their hats in place.) Given that most of the images have long since lost their original context, the viewer -- on second thought -- really doesn't know what these people are charged with, let alone guilty of. And that realization creates a certain sympathy. Visit this show or buy the book and you may feel differently the next time you see a celebrity, or a pedophile, in a mugshot.
