Arbus-esq photo

I chose this photo because of the anger, confusion, and intimidation portrayed by the individual. This photo, which is of the actor Tony Trejo, was taken by photographer Estevan Oriol. The majority of Oriol's work is in black and white, and usually features Latinos and gang members. Much of his work shows a glimpse into what gang life is like. He takes shots of average people, as well as celebrities such as Eminem, Snoop Dog, Lance Armstrong, and Tim Roth. Oriol also collaborates many times with celebrity tattoo artist Mr. Cartoon.
