Brian Gill 

 

Brian was a brilliant photographer who spent his career documenting very diverse groups (SWAT squads, the KKK, gangs) from the inside. This from his Artist's Statement:

 

I am attracted to photographing people who aren't being covered by the mainstream, either because they are peripheral or it's too dangerous. Gangs are perceived in a negative way, yet to them, they have created what they consider a "normal lifestyle." The schism between these two views facinates me. I make no judgements. I photograph. I make images that they perceive as strong and noble. They give these photographs to their mothers.

 

He gained the trust of these members of a Mexican gang in Los Angeles who were as awed by his tales of the Vietnam war as he was by their turf war stories.
