Coinciding with an exhibition at Ampersand titled War. Always War., our third publication features a collection of Crites' earlier acrylic paintings on bag. Titled Mug Shots, the book features a selection of 40+ works that Crites painted between 2008 & 2011, all based on vintage mug shot photographs. "Years ago," Crites writes, "I saw a book of black & white crime photographs from the past. I found it amazing. The characters & crime scenes looked like surreal glimpses into the history of human interaction. Much more intriguing for me were the mug shots. Portraits of people who had just been caught. Despair, frustration, anger – so many expressions could be read on the faces. Each one of these images has a story." Published in an edition of 100 copies, the book was designed in-house & printed on Mohawk Superfine paper. Printing & binding was done right here in Portland, Oregon.
