Gregory Bojorquez grew up in East Los Angeles and began his career photographing his friends and neighbors. After gaining the trust of LA’s notorious street gangs, he became the documentarian of this world. In 2011, he happened to witness a killing spree on Sunset Boulevard, which he captured with his analogue camera. Bojorquez grants viewers deep insight into the lives of people at the margins of society. Since LA Weekly became aware of his work, he also photographed Hollywood greats such as Snoop Dogg and Mike Tyson in an authentic and close manner, some of which have been published in Rolling Stone and FHM magazine.
