I stumbled upon this website and really wanted to share. It has mugshots from the 20′s and seriously, some of them look like they are doing a fashion shoot. They are actually posing in front of the camera and well, considering the fashion from back in the 20′s it sure looks like they could be in a magazine. There are a few of them who look quite scary though. Very ghost like. I think it has to do with the lighting, but some of them have very light eyes, almost non-existent.
Funny thing is, most of them even smile or are just sitting there nonchalantly, not really looking like they are in trouble for anything.
I wish they would still make mugshots like this. They look amazing. Even just the depth and field of the photos alone make them art.
Here are some of my favorites.
What do you think about mugshots like these and which ones are your favorites? :D
