I was looking at a documentary recently about jails in the US and the gangs that rule inside. One group was the Latino crew. So I went online looking for more info and photos and stumbled upon this series of portraits of former LA gang members. The photographer Adam Amengual shot the series for Homeboy Industries, a non-profit organisation in LA helping these former gang members establish a new life.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
