Controlled Substance

Photographic Success In The War On Drugs.

A project about the War On Drugs, something Americans are introduced to as kids through school programs, television shows, and personal experiences. Here we explore a different side of the war: Victory.

Controlled Substance is a collection of portraits featuring law enforcement from around the country posing with seized drugs. The pictures capture a moment where illegal narcotics transform into winning trophies. All the photographs were taken by law enforcement themselves and collected from Google Images over Winter 2015.
