[CRIME] Two photocollages of French criminals,
1929. Gelatin silver prints, each unique, dissected and overpainted to heighten characteristic features for newspaper publication, with cropmarks etc., the verso of one reading "Bande de bandits qui pratiquaient l'agression nocturne contre les automobilistes," dated September 9, 1929 (the inscription demonstrating that there is nothing new under the sun), both versos additionally with indistinct publication stamps, both dated 1929. Generally in sound condition.
A highly unusual class of "mugshot," probably constructed from arrest photographs from earlier offences. With Charles Schwartz Photography.
