Is this the most controversial man in Dallas?

Dallas Observer, June 7, 2018

Description

Landlord or slumlord? Is Khraish Khraish here to help Dallas’ poor or as the city frames it, is he taking advantage of them by offering them sub-par housing options. Columnist Jim Schutze explores this question in depth. For this cover, I wanted to show the humanity of Khraish Khraish, which rarely comes across in the gentrification fights that landlords and the city get into over viable land for condo-fication. So I took a nice serious portrait Mark Graham had shot of him and added a provocative small question: Is this the most controversial man in Dallas?
