Almost a century ago criminals already had to pose before cameras for their mugshots. Surprisingly, I've found out that their mugshots were quite cool analogue portraits as opposed to the present-day beware-of-this-bad-guy kind of portraiture. Their names, vital stats, signature and prison where admitted were all written in cursive style on glass plates. I guess these plates were used as filters so upon taking their photos their mugshots had these information about them. And they had close-ups and full-body shots in more or less glamor poses - complete with dresses for the women and suits for men. To infuse my images of these cool mugshots with elements of crime, I doubled them with broken dolls, mannequins and other things associated with crime. Then as a third layer for the triples I took random street vignettes as I was riding the van from Cotabato City to Midsayap for a workshop on children's rights to Muslim and Christian children of two barangays in Aleosan. After my penchant for chemical experiments with my films, I noticed I'm in the mood for shooting triples these days - and loving it a lot! This set is the second of two albums.
