“Freeway” Ricky Ross

He sold $2 million in one day.


I didn’t have much time to photograph the infamous drug trafficker during my visit to his place in Los Angeles. After the interview for a magazine I had about 15 minutes to take Rick’s portrait. There were these large windows covered with white screens where the magazine was interviewing him. I thought they would make a perfect background. If you don’t know Rick’s story, you should go read up on it. He was a chill, but intense man. You could tell that this guy has been through a lot and has probably seen more a lot than the typical person sees in a lifetime.
