Enemies all

The VII photo agency website is one of the best places to see cutting edge photo-journalism. Especially worth a look is the photo story by Ron Haviv about gang violence in the Jordan Downs/Nickerson Gardens section of Watts, an area of Los Angeles regarded as one of the most dangerous places in America.

The photographs bring into sharp focus the vicious circle of gang life; look out for the images of a fight breaking out at a gang member's funeral and the poor pastor trying to calm things down.
