The Poverty Series

by damien-c

Documenting the stories of the homeless and the riff-raff. A personal journey to understand the people behind the prejudice. I started into photography in January 2008. 6 months later I was hitting the streets trying to document the lives of those we stumble upon and avoid everyday. So I started the Poverty Series. My aim is to reveal their humanity, to know these people’s story and make us realize they once had a family, a functional life and it takes only a small event to make a person abandon everything and hit the streets.
