An independent street art project using criminal mugshots from the 1920s in Adelaide, Australia. During October 2011 I installed 42 large scale posters on the streets of Adelaide depicting archival mugshots, the convicted person's full name, crime, punishment and date of sentencing. The entire project was self funded and carried out without permission from the city council or property owners.
