This portrait series was created by Los Angeles-based photographer and filmmaker August Bradley ( and his team. We brought mobile studio lighting into the tightly packed encampment to create these images.

Thank you to Giang Hoang and Mark Townsend for their help with the shoot and recording the statements.

We also would like to thank Hasselblad (cameras) and Broncolor (lighting) for donating specialty equipment necessary to create this collection.
