These photos are extemely powerful. And I think what makes me saddest is that they are part of so many peoples everyday lives.

BOOGIE!?! Wow....boogie. The shooting up one stopped me dead in my tracks. Wow...let me clarify that. NOT "my tracks" but you get me, right!?!

insanely raw and disturbing. amazing!!!

Kathryn said...

Very powerful and gritty. I think the one of the kid with the gun was the most disturbing, but they guy shooting up in the neck creeped me equally.

blueviolet said...

Those are really powerful images. Wow.

Trissta said...

Oooh. Love black and white. It seems like everything just packs like 10 times the amount of punch when it's in black and white. Love the saturation in these pictures.

Much Love,
Trissta
