Art of the Mug #5

I have had some negative feedback about my mugshot feature. I think they are very insightful portraits of both the sitter's personality and of our own prejudices and assumptions. I particularly find the profiles more revelatory. Even the most normal average face is fascinating in this circumstance.


  1. I agree with you, Mark.
    I cannot see why you'd get neg. feedback

  2. I am glad to hear someone else appreciates the art of the mugshot. The ordinary is extraordinary!
