Mugshots, Photofits, and Eye Totems, (2017) are projects inspired by arrestee photographs and traditional facial composite systems, as well as group studies of human physiognomy. The main work, entitled ‘Smiling Is Prohibited‘ consists of 360 mugshots. Each subject wears a plaque with a number and their name written as an anagram, thereby subverting their true identity and creating a form of alter-ego.
