I've always been intrigued by the homeles. It started on the streets of Manhattan as a photography student with an assignment to capture images of people going about their daily lives. How someone ends up on the street is a complicated and tragic chain of events, I'm certain, and as a photo journalist I try to engage each person, first by giving them money, or buying them lunch. If you ask, often times they'll reveal a small bit of information about their life.
These photos by no means exploit their circumstances, in fact, I hope they do the opposite. I'm more interested in helping the homeless, or at least make sure they have enough money that day for a warm meal.
