Mugshots of Freedom Riders, Jackson Mississippi, 1961. I love their faces and the range of emotions. All the tiny and not so tiny smiles, as if they know something. I wonder if they knew they'd win.

Legend has it that In the late 1880s, the body of a 16-year-old girl was pulled from the Seine. She was apparently a suicide. A Paris pathologist ordered a plaster death mask of her face. Ironically, in 1958 the anonymous girl’s features were used to model the first-aid mannequin Rescue Annie, on which thousands of students have practiced CPR. Though the girl’s identity remains a mystery, her face, it’s said, has become “the most kissed face of all time.”
