L A Gangsters

By Xah Lee. Date:

From time.com, 2001, a special report on Los Angeles gangs: http://www.time.com/time/photoessays/gangs/. Photo by Terry McCarthy. As i have read, the photographer actually lived with the gang, gained their trust as a non-participating member, in order to shoot around them.
