Vintage photo of the week: Disintegration


This is actually a vintage prison photo. If you look closely at the man's neck you can see prisoner number there. But that's not what makes this photo so cool. It's the cracking and disintegration of the paper's emulsion. The crackles almost seem too perfectly spaced and their placement make the photo so much more. I'm sure they hint at some grand truths about the losing of oneself in incarceration. Or something really deep like that. This photo was found via Pinterest. Enjoy!
