Everyone enjoys a mugshot, as much as the next. Invasive? Essential? Photogrpahy lent itself as a most incredible resource for law enforcement around the World. No one can doubt that! These days we’ve all seen the Mel Gibson, Heather Locklear, and the yearly Lindsay Lohan. Somehow, it seems, the mugshot has lost all it’s vintage charm! What happened to the mugshots of yesteryear?! Not to fear, we have unearthed some treats!
“I’m not a prophet or a stone aged man, just a mortal with potential of a superman.”
Some cultures believe a picture holds your soul- your very essence. Before the days of digital, photographs were rendered using chemical processes that captured the very essence of the moment. So, if not your soul, definitely a true essence of ‘time’ has been made.
Pictures speak a thousand words, and most of the stories told here are in the eyes, and naturally, outfits of these “fallen” individuals who were all “taken in” for one thing, or the other. What could their crimes have been? Definitely ask yourself as you take in some special one-of-a-kind cruise through vintage angst, vanity, and liberation.
“Don’t compromise yourself. You are all you’ve got.”
“I’m for truth, no matter who tells it. I’m for justice, no matter who it’s for or against.”
“The best revenge is massive success.”
“Vanity is my favourite sin.”
“I don’t believe in that phony hero stuff.”
Why are we always fighting for freedom when we are all supposed to be free? We all have our reasons, and whatever they be- being true to yourself will never be a crime, no matter how you are judged. Keep on keeping on!
“But the whole point of liberation is that you get out. Restructure your life. Act by yourself.”
