Photography: Mugs – Bad Men & Boys
Look at these guys – make up your own stories – in this case fiction is better than any truth. These guys all look like hardened killers (No. 5 is – Vincent ‘The Chin’ Gigante), but the truth is probably far less interesting – drunks, car thieves, petty theft – who knows, who cares. These guys have great faces and the harsh photography just makes them look better and meaner. For the kids, who knows what they did to get tossed in the chokey – one kid stole some scrap iron, another B and E, but the rest are a mystery.
