Petty Crimes/ Photography/ Art Direction

Photo series created in response to Topic.com’s March issue on crime; specifically the question of what constitutes a criminal. We decided to look at the ridiculous side of everyday "crimes", in order to investigate a darker side - what is designated illegal and what is not. The goal of the series is to highlight the frequency with which ordinary people commit what is officially known as a 'crime', and question where the line between moral ambiguity and societal condemnation lies.

Pictured below are portraits of the everyday criminal and the articles of their crime, presented as evidence.
