He speaks about the brothers Javier and Mark, whom he met while doing research for his East Side StoriesGang Life in East LA series, and what became of them.

Over the past 40 years, Jamel Shabazz has created a singular archive of New York life on the move, finding intimate moments of beauty and humanity in the most unlikely of places: the public transit system.
The subway system in New York City snakes through each of its five boroughs, connecting residents via hundreds of miles of electrified tracks. Just as passengers have been accustomed to the idiosyncrasies of the Metropolitan Transit Authority (MTA) — including its frequent delays and signal malfunctions — so too have they become familiar with art and performing arts within the trains and stations. In the 1980s, in particular, as street art exploded around the city, the steel train cars became the canvases for graffiti artists.
