The Bloodline is an intensely eye-opening and gripping photo series, captured by Colombian-born and American-based photographer Nicolas Enriquez, that explores the lives of Latin gang members in Brooklyn.

The photo series takes viewers on a journey into the day-to-day lives of the Latin Kings, one of America's biggest and most organized gangs boasting around 35,000 active members. Enriquez has long wanted to put together a photo documentary series exploring gang culture, and the Bloodline is a worthy project in this regard.

The photo series aims to explore gang members' lifestyles without simply relying on stereotypical depictions. This photo series therefore does a great job humanizing these gang members and projecting the sense of loneliness, sadness and insecurity that hide beneath the tough exteriors of gang members.
