"Whether you're guilty or innocent, when that shutter clicks, you're in trouble."
Originally a law enforcement tool, the mug shot has deviated from its fundamental purpose as a source of criminal identification. It has been sensationalized through celebritydom, exploited by the leniency of freedom of information, and has captivated the attention of the art world. MUGSHOT explores the personal stories of those whose lives have been transformed by these iconic photographs.
MUGSHOT is a feature documentary investigating the cultural significance of the mug shot.
