Specifically I'm referring to number 2. Those were from the 1920's, and I'm not gonna lie, We need to bring those old mugshot styles back... or make them illegal since they look so badass they'll probably cause a soar in crime just so people can get photographed like that!
But seriously, I really thinking any photographers here should try to replicate those, cause that would be awesome.
some good outfits and hats, there!
These not only ~ look ~ GREAT, but seem very practical for use in police work. Being able to see how a person naturally stands and/or sits increases the ability of the police to identify a suspect on the street. Especially in a crowd. These seem far more useful than the standard, and very unnaturally posed, mug shots the police are usually forced to use.
A GREAT find, Salim!
