Guns, crack and the homeless don't usually come to mind when discussing a beautiful work of photography. But they just may take center stage in photographer Boogie Lens's work.
It is very rare to see hope in images of destruction. But Lens's willingness to get so close to places and people that most of us would go through great lengths to walk away from, is inspiring.
Photographer Boogie Lens uses documentary-style black and white to strengthen the impact of the image, and allow the viewer to focus on what is going on in the photo without distraction. And these images need the attention.
