Seeing another area's street life is always an eye-opener, and Greg Bojorquez's photography certainly widens ours. Candid, gritty and completely uninhibited, it shows thugs living their everyday lives.
Born and raised in Los Angeles, Greg Bojorquez started documenting L.A.'s East Side at a young age. Filled with guns, girls and gangsters, Bojorquez's portfolio led him to gigs photographing celebrities such as Mos Def and Ice Cube. His book 'The Sun Rises In The East' is a compilation of some of the more interesting scenes he has come across.
