The Scene of the Crime


Photography is about making choices, about presenting what's important. And that's why I love forensic photography where vital evidence completely dictates the image. It's both dispassionate and a matter of life and death.

Here, photographer Frank Castorol opted for a spectacular aerial view so as to take in the entire scene of these Mafia killings: the table, the bowls and wine of a cosy, al fresco lunch, the bullets and the victims lying like sad puppets on the ground.

That's a pretty hefty photograph - and yes, in a sense a work of art.

crime scene photos always capture what the eye cannot. and still can be made into art. very nice.
