1920's Criminal Portraits from Australia

I was in awe of this series of "photographs of commitment" from the archive of the Sydney Justice & Police Museum. "They are beautiful, timeless, and peculiarly expressive. These vintage "mug shots" are just brimming with the individuality and personalities of a motley array of people who passed through Australia’s criminal justice system back in the early part of the 20th century .... creating unintentional art 90 years later!" - source
