Javier for East Bay Express
One thing I like about doing editorial work is you never know where your camera will bring you or who you will meet. This portrait was for a story on PTSD in young victims of urban violence.
I met Javier on a corner of Telegraph Ave, where he picked me up in his van. We drove around Oakland while he told me about his life. His family had come to California to escape the drug violence in Columbia, but then he had been shot in the spine on his way home from his senior prom. He joined a neighborhood gang for protection when he came out of the hospital in a wheelchair. Surrounded by violence he said he had to get out - he now works with youth through the same program that helped him leave his old neighborhood.
I’ll be in New York all of next week - if anyone wants to get a drink, make a photo, or see a portfolio send me an email. firstname.lastname@example.org
