The Chosen One: A Conversation With Celebrated Photographer Gusmano Cesaretti

Pancho Lipschitz interviews the visually nomadic photographer Gusmano Cesaretti, who’s spent the last half century documenting East L.A. Graffiti and Cholo culture, South Central L.A. outlaw motorcycle culture, Chicago South Side and the demise of the infamous Cabrini Green, the irrubescent sex trade in Rio de Janerio, gun-branded ghetto life in Panama, along with smaller, more intimate dramas amongst the living and those to ghost.
