Alphonse Bertillon, the chief of criminal identification for the Paris police department, developed the mug shot format and other photographic procedures used by police to register criminals.

One of Alphonse Bertillon's so-called 'God's-eye view' photographs of a Paris crime scene. He pioneered the technique, that involved mounting his camera on a very tall tripod above the body of a murder victim, to enable the police to capture the most comprehensive and accurate picture of a crime scene as possible.
