The Identity in Transit exhibition, which opens next year, will feature interpretations of 19th-century police mugshots, recreated in paint or screenprints by Strasser, who works under the name MAST.

The result is an abstracted rogue’s gallery of Victorian thieves, prostitutes and assorted miscreants.
