Lindsay Lohan, Justin Beiber, and Amanda Bynes, these are just a few celebrities who have graced the covers of Mug Shot weekly. The lifestyles of the rich and the famous aren’t always as extravagant as they
may seem. Their every move is cemented on buzzfeed, and their lives are represented by hashtags and retweets. Life can be hard for a celebrity fighting the law within the all seeing eye of the public. It seems
like celebrities have a knack into getting into trouble, especially over the last decade, thanks to the emergence of the Internet and new media; celebrity scandals have been easier to information to access, than the
weather outside. Photographs of celebrities can go for a pretty penny. But the most valuable celebrity shots are not those taken by paparazzi or magazine photographer, but instead those taken by our men in uniform.
The photographs are elevated to the status of fine art and immortalized in the twitter-verse. The more you’re in trouble, the more popular you get, specially if you’re a member of the Hollywood elite. The purpose
of the exhibition is a satire on how our importance on celebrity has escalated; it’s a mirror at the circus that we have created. Take a look at our role models as they put on their most photo ready faces for the
police cameras. From reckless driving, to dances with narcotics; the following exhibit is compromised of the most notable celebrity tangles with the law, photographs, and items.
