Before working with HomeAid Houston, a 501 c 3 charity that builds transitional housing for Houston’s homeless, I photographed homeless individuals in and around downtown Houston. It is hard not to be touched by the people you see sleeping on the sidewalks or begging for money or food. Their faces inspired me to try and capture a moment in their lives through a photograph. When you study their faces, you understand there is a story there, one that you’ll probably never hear. Below are a few of those pictures.
