    AMAZING. I will visit his site over and over again to really take in those images. It’s as if he captured God looking out at us. The intimacy is incredible.

    Striking, successful images. Though I’m hoping the photographer was able to do something for these people considering he created a commodity from their poverty.

    WOW THAT Amazing

  • The photography is tremendous. They are AWESOME visual stories of what too many human souls suffer through in our world today, yet until you have walked among them you can’t even imagine the depths of agony . I wonder how many people stop to think about what attempting to exist through this life is really like on a daily basis for the homeless. We at encourage you to learn more and read about the homeless on our “About the Hurting and Homeless” page. Let’s do something about it.
