|Abstract||In 2000 the American photographer Taryn Simon began photographing people whose criminal convictions has been overturned through the work of the Innocence Project. Simon's project was explicitly to scrutinise the role played by photography in the criminal justice system, in particular its role in producing guilt from innocence. This article examines photography from the perspective of criminology, asking whether technologies for visual capture demand particular care when used to secure criminal convictions.|
