Adam Amengual got the idea for his portrait series “Homies” from a place that’s close to our heart – NPR.

After hearing a radio piece about Homeboy Industries, a non-profit that gives job training to former gang members in Los Angeles, he decided to cold-call the organization to work with them on a project.

To make the series, Amengual set up a portrait booth in the front lobby of Homeboy’s offices in Downtown L.A. and asked people if they could stop for a photo.
