'Le Théâtre du Crime'

 In > art culture design

It’s the final days of this grisly show which celebrates the creation a century ago of the Lausanne forensic police department. The twenty or so images were all taken by the pioneering forensic scientist Rodolphe Reiss, and display, in a chill formal style, the crimes and passions of humanity. It’s rare that these archives see the light of day.
Until 5 Feb. Tue-Fri, 2-6pm. Sat, 10am-5pm. Free entry.
Bibliothèque des littératures policières, 48-50 rue du Cardinal Lemoine, 5th.
Poisoning by acid of Mme Bollo (Bière, January 1910)

Delaporte murder, reproduction by Reiss of how the axe was held (Gimel, January 1910)
