Film maker and photographer, Christian Poveda has been assassinated this week by a Salvador gang he was currently working on. Here are some pictures published today by Le Monde
and another gallery
on flickr illustrating what Jean-Pierre Limosin was showing in Young Yakuza and David Cronenberg in Eastern Promises, the whole story and categorization of those gangs’ members tattooed on their skins. The result always surprised me in the ambiguity between a form of primitiveness and cyborg manifesto.
