Originally a law enforcement tool, the mugshot has deviated from its fundamental purpose as a source of criminal identification. It has been sensationalized through celebritydom, been exploited by the leniency of freedom of information, and captivated the attention of the art world. Mugshot explores the personal stories of those whose lives have been transformed by these iconic photographs.
