Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

When shots ring out, photographers shoot back. Their images can startle, inform, and serve as witness. Mundane and profound, gruesome and compelling crime photographs are, for better or worse, part of our world. Featuring many rarely and never-before-seen images, this heavily illustrated book sheds new light on the role of crime photography in our history and in our culture.

These are pictures we see once and never forget: an autopsy photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald; the bodies of Lizzie Borden's parents, photographed in the room where they were slain; mug shots of celebrities such as Larry King and Bill Gates; and O.J. Simpson pictured wearing shoes that match the footprints at the murder scene.

Review:

"A jolting and thought-provoking collection of crime pictures over the years that is beautiful even at its most horrific." Kevin Baker

Synopsis:

A collection of crime photographs from the dawn of photography up to the present day. Many of those included are rare or never seen before: all have the ability to disturb. The images include an autopsy photograph of Lee Harvey Oswald; and a shot of the bodies of Lizzie Borden's parents.
