New York magazine peeks into the world of equity prop trading - the next step up from the at-home-in-your-undies day-trading that characterised the late-90s tech bubble.

Worth a look, not least for the photos by pro photog Vincent LaForet (previously on JRE).

**Related and AWESOME: **Vincent LaForet’s Photoshelter gallery. Start with this photo of the broken levees in New Orleans (available as a print!) or this one from inside a fighter jet (ditto), then keep on browsing.
