Dead Men Don't Look Like Me by Paul Schiek



—01. Carroll.
—02. Dunnell.


Paul Schiek's show at Stephen Wirtz Gallery presents 15 portraits of men re-photographed from 1950's era mug shots that were found by the artists friend. Schiek edited several hundred mug shots down to only a select few, which he then cropped to remove all the official documentation, but leaving the stains, staple marks and other signs of age. The show runs until June 2nd, and Schiek's own These Birds Walk book imprint will release a companion publication, with a limited edition box set also available.

A great twist on raw portraiture. Thanks for sharing Daddio.
