Ok, these are the prettiest mugshots I’ve ever seen. These oil on panel portraits are part of a series, titled ACCUSED, by British artist Sarah Ball. I’m not sure what these trouble-makers did, but I’d probably let all of them go just for lookin’ so darn good!

{I found this work through London’s bo.lee gallery. They’ll be showing Sarah’s work at the London Art Fair in January 2014 and are planning a solo Show for her in May.}

    These mugshots are enchanting! Could not decide which one spoke to me the most – they are all wonderfully provocative.

    As a collector of photobooth photos, these works really appeal to me. It si so wonderful to see them. I rarely comment, but I do love this blog. I never miss a post. Thanks for all the work you put into it!
