Pep Williams grew up skating on the streets of LA, knew Tupac, Dr Dre and Kurt Kobain. He is a professional skater, a model and a photographer. He has travelled the world photographing and being photographed. Pep’s pictures have a gritty rawness that only someone who grew up on the same streets as those who pose for him could achieve. His subjects are often the tattooed sort of people that might make you consider crossing the road but Pep draws out their vulnerability and shows their human side.
