Mugshots are neither that ideal portraits or ways people want to be remembered by. But a particular series of vintage mugshots taken by an anonymous photographer for the Sydney Police Department in the early 20th century became our inspiration for Heritage Mugshots. These black and white images are striking not because of the particular crime each subject has committed but because of the great depth, clarity and poignancy each one showed. Far from the stark white, bleary-faced, unflattering mugshots we know today, these records are a work of art.

Sydney, Australia from 1912 through 1930 sets the scene for the inspiration behind the images that appear before you. An anonymous photographer captured countless mug shots of arrested suspects for the Sydney Police Department. The black and white photographs captured physical appearance, but more strikingly, the soul, character and tenacity of each individual.
