This painting continues my interest in the theories of Alphonse Bertillon and is one of a series of works made for my exhibition ' Bertillon' shown earlier this year. Put simply Bertillon was a policeman and biometrics researcher who applied the anthropological technique of anthropometry to law enforcement in the late 1800's using photography to create an identification system based on physical measurements. Used to evidence the pathology of crime and criminals this system was thought to connect outward physical appearance and inner character traits.
