A new photo of George Zimmerman, the man who shot Trayvon Martin, has been released.

The photo on the left is a 2005 police booking photo provided by the Orange County Jail via The Miami Herald, and on the right is an undated but recent photo of Zimmerman taken from the Orlando Sentinel's website.

Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch volunteer in the town of Sanford, Florida, told police he shot unarmed 17-year-old Trayvon Martin on February 26th.

The photo of Zimmerman on right is a sharp contrast from the widely used 2005 booking photo from an arrest in Miami Dade County.
