|© Jaime Permuth, Untitled, Yonkeros series.|
Photographer Jaime Permuth has a wonderful B&W project called Yonkeros that will be featured as an En Foco Touring Gallery Exhibition. Mark your calendars and go see this show!
“Yonkeros” is a popular term for businesses that strip wrecked cars and sell them as scrap metal or for parts. The term is a Spanglish derivative of “junk”, conjugated grammatically to refer to people who engage in this line of work.
