Some of these images were recently published in The San Francisco Examiner.
These are portraits of our neighbors.
We pass them on the street every day, yet they’re often abstracted in our conversations as statistics, problems, or criminals. As the homelessness crisis becomes more politicized, we lose sight of the very real humans living through this tragedy.
But we can’t fix something we can’t face. My work is an attempt to combat a numbing, hopeless feeling, because a true solution to this crisis will be born of our collective empathy, not apathy or contempt.
In these portraits of people experiencing homelessness, I hope to make us look at our neighbors just a little bit longer.
