In the recent past, the study of Southeast Asia has taken a “visual turn” that has seen the publication of a number of insightful and incisive studies on the visual culture of countries in the region. This study adds constructively to this growing body of literature, written primarily by anthropologists, by continuing to expand the field of visual studies to ‘non-art’ objects and representational practices. By taking a historical look at the development of ‘the visual’ in the criminal process, a trend that impacts not only the operation of the legal system but also shapes daily life, this study ultimately aims to shed light on the nature of proof and the way in which people understand power and politics in Thailand today.
