This essay is the study of a series of photographs of people that between 1946 and 1963 were deemed to be suspicious and in many cases ‘warned off’ greyhound-racing tracks in the UK. They are, as far as we know, snapshots and police mug shots assembled into an album by the security department of the Greyhound Racing Association in order to identify criminals. This text examines how a collection of photographs creates a power relationship between authority and the individual. We now read the individual through the archive with imaginative flexibility rather than a strictly indexical or evidential gaze.
