Homeless Faces of NYC
The following portraits were taken of homeless people in my hometown of New York City. These portraits were also taken in the heart of Manhattan, a center of enormous wealth and economic power. This economic inequality underscores the barbarous reality that defines life in the contemporary United States.
In an increasingly atomized society, where people have come to define themselves based solely on their incomes and careers, those who are unable to attain sound employment are easily lost and forgotten. It is with these portraits, that I have sought to bring attention to their all too often neglected, and tragic plight.
These are the faces of our fellow Americans. They cry out to be heard.
