The New York Times Book Review, Andy Grundberg 
  
This modest catalogue, which accompanies an exhibition organized by Sandra S. Phillips, packs a wallop bigger than its size.... Why show mug shots in a museum, or in a book intended for an art audience? The answer may lie in the need to explain contemporary photographers' fascination with the subjects of surveillance, categorization and control.  
  
 
  
Ingram 
  
In the 150 years since its emergence, photography has become a primary police tool. Filled with mug shots, scenes of the crime, blood drenched victims, and other gruesome evidence, POLICE PICTURES explores both the manipulation of images and the policing function of photography. Published in conjunction with a San Francisco Museum of Modern Art exhibit. Over 120 full-color and duotone images .
