Incredible portraits of former gang members from New York photographer Adam Amengual. The series ‘Homies’ was made possible by the Homeboy Industries program that helps one-time gang members get back on the straight and narrow. Adam describes “A majority, if not everyone in this series has had a mug shot taken of them at one time in their past. I feel I have flipped that old image of them showing them as proud and iconic. It is a visual metaphor for the transformation they are bringing to their own lives.” More over at Flavorpill.
