About this product
- DescriptionPrisoners is a collection of seventy extraordinary portraits of turn-of-the-century prisoners and the fascinating newspaper and prison accounts from their day describing the crimes of which they were accused. Printed from their original glass negatives, these powerful photographs capture the character and pathos of men young and old charged with crimes as desperate as the theft of a pair of shoes and as cold-blooded as murder. Reconnecting the accounts of their misdeeds and misfortunes with these rare photographs, Arne Svenson has created much more than a mere rogues' gallery: Prisoners is an aesthetic, historical, and philosophical evocation of the lives of these forgotten men. Beautifully reproduced in duotone, these photographs are stunning portraits lost to time until w. Written in the hand of the original photographer onto each glass negative is the name of the accused and his crime, forever shackling the man to his offense.
