Description of the book "East Side Stories: Gang Life in East L. A.":
The myth of the tough urban gangster is a powerful--and widely misunderstood--pop-culture icon. East Side Stories showcases photographer Joseph Rodriguez's haunting and poetic images, humanizing official statistics and challenging media stereotypes. "East Side Stories is ultimately a profile of family, whether it is the nuclear family, the gang or the entire Mexican-American population of East Los Angeles. Various gangs are brought together in the book--appropriately, because underneath the rivalries, they are all members of the same community- Rodriguez reminds us this community is also part of our country." --The New York Times Book Review PDF. "Joseph Rodriguez's photographs are like a slow float down the wide boulevards that L.A. made so famous. Bringing details into focus, Rodríguez's lens is the eye in the passenger seat, not just freezing but assessing the moment." --Los Angeles Times.
