Back in 2009, the art director and artist Mark Michelson published a book «Least Wanted». In it he has collected more than 10,000 portraits of criminals from the 1870s to the 1970s.
Remembering this book, one of the photographers had an idea. Nick Dolding, from London, decided to recreate some of these images for his new portrait series “Wanted.” Nick selected the most memorable photos from the book and tried to make them in the studio.
For his collection, he focused on the period of the 20’s and 30’s of the XX century. All his portraits came to fame in Doldinga and his team obtained and gangsters and prostitutes, and young hoodlums. To make pictures as realistic as possible, the models worked hard over the make-up and make-up. In the end, came out great work that people not familiar with the art of photography, not be much different from the original one hundred years old.
