Russian Criminal Tattoo Police Files Book Description:

This book features over 180 photographs and accompanying texts of Russian criminal tattoos from the Arkady Bronnikov collection. From the mid-1960s to the late- 1980s Bronnikov worked as a senior expert in criminalistics at the USSR Ministry of Internal Affairs, part of his duties involved visiting correctional institutions of the Ural and Siberia regions. It was here that he interviewed, gathered information and took photographs of convicts and their tattoos, building one of the most comprehensive archives of this phenomenon. He regularly helped to solve criminal cases across Russia by using his collection of tattoos to identify culprits and corpses. The Bronnikov collection was made exclusively for police use, to further the understanding of the language of these tattoos and to act as an aid in the identification and apprehension of criminals in the field. Unimpeded by artistry, these vernacular photographs present a guileless representation of criminal society. Every image discloses evidence of an inmate's character: aggressive, vulnerable, melancholic, conceited. Their bodies display an unofficial history, told not just through tattoos, but also in scars and missing digits. Closer inspection only confirms our inability to comprehend the unimaginable lives of this previously unacknowledged caste.

Russian Criminal Tattoo Encyclopaedia Book Description:

Les photographies, les dessins et les textes publiés dans cet ouvrage font partie d'une collection de plus de trois mille tatouages recueillis patiemment par Danzig Baldaev, alors qu'il était surveillant de prison. Ces tatouages sont la portée vers un monde secret - une société très fermée dans laquelle Danzig Baldaev a joué un rôle d'ethnographe. les langages iconiques et tribaux qu'il nous donne à voir sont artistiques, repoussants, sexuellement explicites, parfois tout simplement étranges, mais ils reflètent dans tous les cas la vie et les rituels des détenus. Des crânes, des svastikas, des harems de femmes nues, des chevaliers médiévaux en armures, des poignards dégoulinants de sang, des images pieuses du Christ, des armées de chars d'assaut, et un Lénine cornu - autant de symboles par lesquels les êtres de ce monde secret se marquent et s'identifient.
