Filthy Visionz: The photography of Vargucci
Adrien Vargas a.k.a. Vargucci is a Los Angeles-based photographer by way of New York. His weapon of choice is powerful black and white shots of the many people and places he encounters, often at a time when most people hit REM sleep.
The gritty nature of his photos are a testament to the street-savvy nature of his NY roots. A force to be reckoned with when behind the lens, Vargucci captures the very soul and sentiment of everyone and everything he shoots. Whether it's someone like the legendary Nas, or the guy "cocinando la carne," Adrien's shots illustrate the mastery of his craft and exude respect for his subjects and their personal story. To see a Vargucci photo is as visceral an experience as traversing the city of Los Angeles between dusk and dawn. He's one of my favorite photographers.
