|Description: Vintage Collage of Gelatin Silver Prints - Hand Colored
These photographs are from a series of images of French criminals that were reproduced in the tabloid newspaper, Le Petit Parisien, in the late 1920s and early 1930s. Photos of wanted and condemned criminals appeared in this paper each day. These prints have been heavily retouched for dramatic effect and in order to heighten contrast for better reproduction results. This skillful retouching is attributed to two Italians. 1|
