Photography has been used as a tool in the documentation of crime scenes since the medium's earliest days. Among the highlights of this exhibit, which showcases the intersection of photography and crime, are: Alexander Gardner's documentation of the events following Lincoln's assassination, a shot of John Dillinger's feet from the Chicago morgue, and Jack Ruby shooting Lee Harvey Oswald. The exhibit also includes photos by Alphonse Bertillon, the French criminologist behind the modern mug shot. For more information, visit metmuseum.org.
