Looking Beyond the TattoosBook - 2017 | First edition
Skin Deep is a project that seeks to show the effects of this ongoing gang conflict in Los Angeles. Steven Burton set out to photograph realistic portraits of former gang members who are trying to escape the revolving door of death and prison. The aftermath of gang life is not only carried within - it is also scrawled across faces and bodies. Skin Deep uniquely highlights the impact tattoos have on the way a person is perceived by showing what each participant might look like without them.
