 Powerful pictures show the tattooed faces of El Salvador’s most notorious gang.Photographer Adam Hinton has released a new book featuring intimate portraits of members of the dangerous MS -13 gang who reside inside one of the country’s bulging prisons.

Located in the south of the Central American country, Penal de Ciudad Barrios prison was originally built to hold up to 800 members of the gang – however it currently houses 2600.
The award winning photographer said



 “The men stand around aimless with nothing to do except kill what seems like an infinity of minutes, hours and days.
“The vast majority of the inmates are from the Barrios or slums.
“In El Salvador this is a place without hope or opportunity and the gang is the only real option.“If the authorities catch you this is the place they literally dump you and forget about you – every inmate is made to feel just like that.”
