About This Image
Cynical caricatures are collaged between photographs in a dynamic black and white zigzag. The criminals in question are placed on the left, while their accusers (possibly judges) are positioned at dominant angle to the right of each. This positioning shows the relationship between the criminals and the law makers. The names of the gentleman are marked vertically along side each portrait, adding to the design of the work.
This piece was hand painted, heightening the contrast for newspaper reproduction.
