As senior expert in criminalistics at the USSR ministry of internal affairs for more than thirty years, Arkady Bronnikov can be regarded as Russia’s leading expert on tattoo iconography. From the mid-1960s to mid-1980s, he visited correctional institutions of the ural and siberia regions where he interviewed and documented images of convicts and their body art, going on to build one of the most comprehensive archives of this category. He regularly helped solve criminal cases across Russia, exclusively granting the collection for police use, to aid in the identification of culprits and corpses. His photographs of nameless figures present a visceral representation of criminal society;Their bodies illustrate an unofficial personal account of their history, imbued in symbolism and metaphor.
