Photofit

If the Daily Mail is anything to go by - pedophiles, rapists, murderers and misc bad guys/gals are running wild on our streets - with newspaper front covers littered with photofits inviting us to play a more serious over-breakfast edition of Guess Who.

It's going back afew years, but I wanted to share a project photographer Giles Revell did in 2008, called simply 'Photofit'.

"In providing each sitter with the same tools – a 1970s police Photofit kit, the process by which they created their self-portrait was democratized; the immediate, tactile qualities of the kit enabling them to tell their own story as a likeness falls into place, piece by piece."

Great photographer with some truely awesome projects : http://gilesrevell.com/
