Behind the Lens: YSociety

by • March 28, 2014 • Blog, Photography, Visual


Making regular appearances on our Tumblr, anonymous photographer YSociety‘s images capture the murky depths of LA’s night people. Showcasing the life and antics of a graffiti writer in one of America’s most prolific scenes, he merges candid images of his crew painting, infiltrating train yards and larking around in the city’s many lesser tread alcoves with street photography and scenes of the day to day. A true testament to the phrase ‘The best camera is the one you have with you’, his lo-fi analogue photography mimics the gritty reality of his subjects as LA’s underworld peers out from moodily tinted hues and striking black and whites, the life of slum city kids romanticized through his lens. Check out some of our favorite of his flicks below, and see more on his Tumblr.
