A top art critic from The Los Angeles Times once called Eriberto Oriol “a people’s aesthete for his discerning eye.” Indeed, Eriberto’s photos have a strong sense of perspective and composition. This formal sensibility is further elevated by his gift for capturing the raw essence and realities of L.A. Latino street life and instilled in Eriberto’s son, Estevan Oriol, at an early age. Altamont presents a video, in two parts, about its collaboration with Eriberto, directed by none other than Estevan Oriol. (from Hypebeast)

“Former club bouncer and Los Angeles native Estevan Oriol got his start in the entertainment business managing tours for huge artists like “House of Pain” and “Cypress Hill” almost 20 years ago. While globe trotting with them he began his photography career taking flicks of the madness and glitter that surrounds international celebrities. When he was back home in L.A though, it was a much different story. He took his cues from the street life surrounding him. The singular dramatic black and white photos he produces are gripping, beautiful, and authentically menacing portraits of individuals fully immersed in L.A gang lifestyle. Blessed with a talented eye and a hood pass, he takes pictures in places armed with a camera where most tough guys would take a weapon.  Offered for the first time to the public for free, in this exclusive interview from  “The Run Up”, Estevan Oriol expresses his thoughts, methods, and views on approaching everyday with the hunger of a hustler who doesn’t know where his next meal will come from.”
