Lost, Found and sometimes Arrested

Here, wanna waste some time? Go to this amazing Flickr feed.

I’m not sure why vintage mugshots are so damn fascinating… Maybe it’s because they’re portraits of something that ‘just happened’ and something else that is about to happen. Like freezing the person in a state of being in-between. And being older than the present adds another dimension to the story. Times were tougher. Laws were looser.

I just wish I knew what they did to get thrown in the cage…
