Cops & Robbers Issue

There’s nothing more fascinating than a very old mugshot. The effort on the part of the arrested to make it difficult for the Lawman to take his photograph is often comical.

In this issue of Shades we explore Cops & Robbers and their association with photography. Maureen Taylor introduces The Well Dressed Criminal, Denise Olson prepares The Cub Reporter, and Craig Manson tells the Story of Bonnie & Clyde in photographs.

In2Genealogy compares the creative non-fiction account of Linda Palmer’s Great Great Grandfather Sheriff John Campbell to his recently discovered photograph. Did she come close?

Penny Dreadful takes us into the courtroom for the trial of Edward J. Muybridge, a famous photographer. Does he get away with murder?

A cabinet card commemorating murder leads us into a photographic criminal case study. Oh, the twists and turns.

Janine Smith instructs us step-by-step into Windows of the Past, an image meld.

And don’t miss ArtiFacts and the killer fingerprints.

You’re going to find this issue very arresting!
