Photography By Lee Jeffries
Biking through the pouring rain two nights ago I wondered what it would be like to be homeless, in the rain. Unimaginably difficult to merely survive without a roof or a place of rest, I tried to empathize with their constant struggle. But I won’t fool you and act like I understood. I couldn’t. All I could do was imagine. Fortunately there are those who have gone to greater lengths than I to understand their struggle. Capturing searing profiles of over 100 different homeless people, U.K.-born photographer, Lee Jeffries has recently showcased this stunning collection of photographs. And while the images within serve to capture a part of Lee’s efforts, I’d recommend checking out Lee’s flickr page to view the full scope of the project.
