These are some of the images I’ve made over the years of those living in poverty. I always spent time speaking with the individuals I photograph. In many cases I have become long-time friends with those I encounter. As a documentary-style photojournalist I decided to begin painting on some of the images I’ve made in order to possibly bring a broader audience to view help bring awareness to the issues of poverty and homelessness. These prints are available. Half of the proceeds go to my friends. Thanks for browsing.
