The 2013 Lo Maximo event celebrated HomeBoy Industries 25th Anniversary and the release of the new book, “Hungry For Life” for which I did all the photography. Angelica Houston, Martin Sheen and Richard Cabral all toasted the achievements of Father Gregory Boyle and HomeBoys and the hosts for the evening were Lisa Ling, Jimmy Smits and Joe Torre. Warren Olney, who is the host and executive producer of the nationally syndicated program, “To The Point” introduced the book to the 1000 attending guests which included the Los Angeles Chief of Police.
